I have a request to make a Coach purse, but am wondering if anyone out there has made a similar cake with such a busy design?-- My hand is cramping up at the thought at painting the numerous logos- icon_cry.gif and I'm not sure If I'll like the look of handpainting-- sure it won't be as crisp as I'd like!!-
Has anyone ever seen a stamp or stencil for purse logos?-- I've made one purse cake by "creative" cutting for a letter "C", but I don't think it would look good to cover the thing in fondant cut-outs-- Any suggestions from all the CC experts?-- Thanks so much for your help!--

this is not the exact purse, but similar in that the logos are multicolored, but the purse will be black with the multicolored logo -

Thanks for the info about the attachments icon_smile.gif

I used a stencil burner(you can find one at any craft store) and created my own coach logo stencil. There are some Coach patterns that you can find on this site. I traced the logo on my stencil and then carved them out with the burner. It took a while, but I have used my stencil many times, so it was worth the time it took. Here are a couple of pics of cakes with the stencil I made. Good luck!
