This is my fabulous Chanel cake that I made for a girls night!  Easy and impressive!  Below you can see how I made the chain for this purse.  After I made the base chain, I painted it with gold luster dust and then attached little strips of black fondant between each chain link to mimic fabric.  Enjoy!

You will need a small ball of gum paste.  Roll the gumpaste into a thin cylinder and then use 2" sections of the cylinder to form the links.  Pinch ends together to seal them.

    Would love to know which brand gold luster dust you used — thanks!

    I actually get my gold luster dust from fondantsource.com. I believe it is just their store brand. It works super great!
