Would love to have any tips on how to make the coach logo for a purse cake? I've seen some painted on....is that freehand or stencil....or is it easier to use fondant. Any help would be greatly appreciated
I've seen some amazing and realistic coach purses on this site and we love some experitse)
thanks a bunch
have you gotten any help yet ? What I did was find a c pattern online (actually I think someone has one posted on cake central somewhere, you can search in the gallery for the c pattern there) Then I transferred the pattern to cardboard. Then I cut the card board out(not easy at the thin parts) When I tranferred my pattern on the cake wat I did was trace the pattern on the cake with a toothpick(in the future I will use a pencil! I didnt know you could use pencil!!! )then I filled the pattern in with my dye mixture. I need to find a better mixture for next time. But that was it. Took forever ! Good luck
Thanks Colleen for your help....i was disappointed with the lack of help on this site in regards to my post, i ended up using a round cutter (bent a little), a lot quicker than i thought.
Thanks again for your help, greatly appreciated
sugar-2 it appears you already did your cake but here's what I did for future reference. I printed the pattern from the templates gallery and taped it to the back of a stencil sheet(plastic). I cut out the c's with a stencil cutter( this actually burns it), filed the rough edges and airbrushed all the c's. I tried with a sponge, tried stamping, and tried painting by hand. I didn't like any of those. I usually don't search the forums so I never saw this post. There are alot of questions pertaining to coach purses in the forums. Maybe someone has an easier way? You can see mine in my pics.
thanks 808hedda......your coach purches are great by the way
I have done a good amount of stenciling and the way that 808hedda cut the stencil is great. I use a palette knife to put buttercream or royal icing on a stencil. It works better than anything else I have tried.
I, too, had not seen this post to respond to it.
