I thought I posted this earlier but I don't see it any where.
So if this is a double I apologize.
I am trying to make my first 3-D purse for my son's girl friend.
Does any one have a pattern that they are willing to share of handles, zipper, corners and so forth.
I saw the directions on here, and I know there are a million purses out there but...
I'd really like this cake to be perfect and I am swamped this week.
Any template examples are GREATLY appreciated!
THANK YOU!

I just did a purse cake without a template - actually I 've done the same purse cake two weeks in a row without a template. just go for it! Depending on how many people you need it to feed. If it is a small party you bake a 9 X13 cake (1 box) Then cut it into a 9 x 4 rectangle. then smaller rectangles stacked up as layers. If done it tall with 3 layers and short like a pill box purse with only two layers. Then cover the entire stack with fondant. then measure the top and make a Flap detail. If you want the handle to stand up I take a fondant gumpaste mix and run it through the linguine setting on the pasta machine. Twist it and shape into a handle and let dry on foam for at least overnight. Any questions pm me.

BTW - Colette peters birthday cake book has great instructions on two or three types of purses and then also a lipstick and a compact.
