I am making a purse cake using my box mix...I am trying to figure out, what size pan should I use....9x9 cut in 3
or a larger...I dont want a mini cake but I am making 2 cakes one for her twin so this cake doesnt need to be huge at all

I used a 13 x 9 (I know, not a 1 box mix pan) and cut mine in 4 sections (each different widths) to get a tapered look from bottom to top on the ends.

If you use a 9 x 9, the best you can hope for is about 9" wide, 3" deep & 6" tall. That's a little on the small side, but it would work.

is it better to make taller or wider???? Sorry I have been trying to find a good video of how to make but still searching.

I have made a purse cake using instructions similiar to the ones found in the Glamour Cakes book. You can download the book from this site for free. http://www.4shared.com/file/119214525/21f1ba14/Glamour_Cakes.html?s=1
If you don't want to download the book I could send the instructions to you if you would like. Good Luck.

9x13 can even be cut into thirds to make a somewhat oblong purse...then carve down some. Make one of the thirds a bit larger for the base, then taper up.
