Someone wants this cake and I've not done one as of yet. How would I do this and how would I support it? Thanks everyone for any and all help. She wants this purse with smaller C's and different colors. Oh, and what would you charge? I don't even know how many this would feed???????

when I did my purse cake, I baked a 1/4 sheet cake. then I cut 5", 4" and 3" slices. then I stacked them using 2-3 long dowels. I trimmed the sides to make an angle. I worked out fine. Hope this helped.

I cut then across the width of the cake. the first slice was about 5" by 9", then 4" by 9" and 3" by 9". they should add up to a 12" by 9" 1/4 sheet pan. stacked them, then cut to make it look like a pyramid effect.
Hope this helped.

yes that should feed about that. I think we served about 10 girls and there was 1/2 the cake left. My cake never goes to waste. My family will eat it for 2 more days.
