I just recently made my first purse cake...I just viewed some purses in the gallery and printed several of them out. I baked 2 9x13's and cut them into thirds and then stacked them on top of each other with buttercream in between each layer. I only used 5 layers, but I did use dowels at the 4th layer and then another center dowel through all 5 layers. Then I just started carving to get the basic shape that I was going for...crumb coated and iced and then decorated. It's not as difficult as you think it's going to be.

Good luck.

What did you cover yours in? I am worried about the accents more than anything... I am also making cupcakes to match the cake because it is a birthday party for a woman who is supposivley very "girly" so she loves her purses and accesories... Any ideas would be very helpful.. Thanks again!
