I need to make a coach purse cake and I was hoping someone who has made some purse cakes could give me any pointers. I understand how to stack the cake, but I'm wondering how to put the fondant on. Do you do it in pieces or cover the entire cake? And any other tips would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!
The two purses I did I used pieces, but it depends on the look you are going for I guess? Since purses have seams it makes sense to me to use pieces though that match up where the seams would be!
I also did it in pieces, I think the seams come out better this way.
I made a brown Coach purse - in my photos
I put fondant over the entire cake and cut out Coach symbols and glued them on after,
I got the coach stencil template in the gallery here under 'templates'
I don`t know if this will help you, but you can try this
I've made 4 purse cakes and my tip is to make your handle(s) days before-hand...whether you want strappy or upright, you'll still want it firm.
FlourPots that is excellent advise!!! And make an extra!!! I always seem to break one!
DeezTreatz, Where do you find the templets I can`t find them under galleries.
thanks all of this is great information!! I really appreciate it.
