So I have finally been asked to do a purse cake, my first to attempt. I was pretty excited and watched a bunch of tutorials, read posts, looked at dozens of pictures... THEN I recieved the picture of which purse they'd like me to create... EEEK!!! (hope the link works)
Can ANYONE tell me how to get that scrunched material look (almost satin-y)?? I was thinking I'd have to cut out pieces of fondant, scrunch them a little onto the cake and do it section by section. But perhaps that would look too choppy... Any opinions would be appreciated... Then I have to figure out price! HAHA
When I first saw the purse I thought of the billowing technique that's discussed in this thread. http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-724225.html. It would require some modification but could work? Just an idea. No matter how you do it it's going to be a lot of work! Good luck. I would like to see your pictures when you're done. I'm sure it will be terrific!
That's a good idea JuliSchulze, thanks! I may use "something" like that to create the effect...or just pretend I've ironed the purse and it's flat haha. As long as it's brown and has the logo it should be good, right?
