I need to make a purse cake for this weekend. I need it to serve approx 10-15 and don't really want to do the split rounds. I'd like it to be more taller than wide. I'm not sure what size cake I should bake to layer up and carve. Any suggestions? TIA!

It would help, if you could at least post a link to a picture of the type of purse you would like to make. You can bake squares and cut them in thirds, stack and carve. I have baked rectangles with the same techniques. All depends on the purse

Without knowing what kind of purse you need, here's a good tutorial for one. There are all kinds of purses, but maybe this one would give you an idea.

Click on the images to enlarge them so that you can see clearly.

I have a purse cake that I do (Burberry inspired) and I use two loaf pans to bake the cake, one slightly larger than the other. I stack those with SMBC between, carve to make a flat surface on all sides and crumb coat before covering with fondant.
You can see the cake in my photos I think.

I use to have a tutorial for bigger purse on my blog "The Cakerator" but I took it down, here is one I posted here a while back.

It's similar to what was on my blog, good luck.

Thank you, Maria! I love your blog. I didn't know it was yours. At some point, I just dragged the url into my filing system from somewhere and kept on reading at the posts. I just realized that it's yours. It's beautiful.

Thanks for those tutorials! I tried to post the picture but it wont upload. I was going to make a 9x13 and cut into 4x9 rectangles torte and stack with strawberry cream cheese filling freeze and then trim down the top corners. I'm hoping that will work for this.
