I just finished my first purse cake! I'm so excited and pleased with the results. A few things I will do differently next time and are griping me to death!
1. I will cut the cake board *BEFORE* I put the fondant on. It's driving me crazy that you can see the ugly cake board poking out the bottom.

2. I will use a smaller tip to write. I *thought* I had a 1 or a 0 round tip. I don't. The smallest I had was a 4 ! A 4 !!! ARGHH! It was extremely hard to write on the charm!

3. I would have made the x's a little smaller so that I could fit 4 x's across instead of just three. The picture of the purse that I was supposed to be copying had 4 x's across. Oh well.

I'm still happy with it over all! What would YOU have done differently??

your purse looks great. I know I would be tempted to move it and cut down the board, but dont do it if you think that you will hurt your cake. Great Job!!!

Freakin' CUTE! I have been meaning to make a purse for a while, but I keep putting it off. No good excuse to make one I suppose. I am gonna have to just do it. Yours is great though. I love the closure.

I love making cake purses and yours is GREAT! The actual purse is perfect (don't know what the pic looks like). It looks like a real purse. I agree with you on the cake board and the writing on the charm, but the purse is perfect. Great job! thumbs_up.gif
