Hi guys & gals! I'm making a "diva" cake for my girlfriends for our monthly get together this weekend and I've already gotten a pattern for making the gumpaste shoe and I found a great martini glass graphic to use as a template for that, but I'm having trouble finding a pattern or template for a gumpaste purse. It doesn't have to be very big, I just want it as an accent for the top of the cake (which will be a 6" round), so I'd prefer it be a 3D purse (instead of a flat image)

TIA for any help!

Global Sugar Art has some Stephen Benison purse cutters with instructions -- perhaps that would help. I'm not familiar with any templates offhand, but I could be mistaken on that. I originally thought you wanted to learn how to make a purse cake and I know two different ways to do them, but they're big cakes, not toppers. Hope that helps some.

thanks, molly, but that is for a purse cake.. i don't want to make the whole cake look like a purse. i am wanting to make a 3d accent piece out of gumpaste that looks like a small purse. are the cutters my only option??? i don't have the time to order one (plus they are $20 for something I might not use that often). i'd much rather have a pattern or template to use to cut out the fondant myself... i can't be the first one to have needed this....
