My first standing up (3D) purse! Lots of mistakes! 1- not enough icing ; 2- Used thin ice to 'glue' the fondant 3- Had not clue what I was doing...just really trying to see if I could do one! LOL Next purse I'll use lots of icing to cover cake imperfections and will use other method to glue fondant to cake. I don't know how peopel do purses but without a pattern it was a hit and miss game! But I DID IT!
