So a friend has asked me to make this coach purse cake for her birthday. And I would just like a litle help... For the cake itself I'm thinking of using a 7x11 pan baking 4 layers 2" or so high with a little buttercream in each. So after the 1st and 2nd layers should I put a board for stability or no? Also as for the C's.... I know some people go on the coach website and trace over the coach wallpaper to get a coach stencil.... so should I paint it in with petal dust and vodka? Use food safe markers?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!!

in the purses i've done, i've always put a board in between the bottom two and top two layers. i think the sizes you've listed would work, i usually bake two 11x15 and cut them in half just so i don't have to bake as much, though. for the c's on my cake i used the cricut and fondant, when doing it with buttercream i think it can get a little messy. hth!

Wow, thanks your c's look great! But I don't have the cricut machine so I have to find another way and so far it seems the stencil/painting method might be the best.

If anyone else can give me tips on how to do the c's I would really appreciate it, thanks!

When I made my coach cakes I hand painted every logo on the cake in gold lustre dust..Very time consuming but turned out okay..Wish I had a better method as I don't have a cricut either..
