I'm just so excited that this actually turned out, I had to share. I followed the purse tutorial, but covered it in fondant and painted with lemon extract and pink luster dust (just the Wilton kind). This was my first fondant cake, and I don't feel so scared now! Thanks for looking.

Fantastic job!! I'm not that great at fondant. I've tried a couple of cakes. I prefer buttercream, though you cant get the same effect. Yours is great. I would love to try to do a purse someday.

Awesome job! I'm making my first official fondant cake in about two weeks. I sure hope it turns out looking half as good. Maybe one day, I'll have the courage to try a purse cake thumbs_up.gif

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I made a stencil for the C's out of stencil "plastic" that I got at WalMart in the craft section. I went to the Coach site and printed a large copy of the logo, then just traced and cut it out. I believe that someone has a stencil pattern here at C.C. for the C's, but I couldn't find it. I held the stencil up to the cake and with pink luster dust and lemon extract, I painted each one on. I started out with very little on the brush, and dabbed it on. If you use too much, it will run under the stencil. I went back after it was all done with a smaller brush and filled everything in, corrected any mistakes, etc. It did take a long time! I liked the effect, though.
