This cake was inspired by purse cake done by "micfish". The pattern is freehanded and the handle is ribbon. My sister wanted a "coach" purse for her birthday, so I made this one as a joke with collaboration from my Mom. We had TONS of fun. This is my first sculpted cake and my first scratch made cake. It's a scratch golden yellow cake with buttercream and chocolate cream cheese buttercream. I also made Cake Balls with the leftover carved parts. YUMMY!
