Side View of the Purse Cake
| Here I have crumb coated the cake in Crusting Buttercream,
then shaved a little off the sides to form a purse shape.
| I made some Fondant Accents for the Purse.
Using the ruler, I measured all areas needed to cover in fondant.. Let these dry for a few hours..
Use the fondant cutter & embosser to make the stitch effect.
| Ice the entire cake in Crusting Buttercream and awaits
it’s final touches.
| Apply the fondant accents to the cake.
TIP: You can use a tiny bit of alcohol (clear Vodka, Everclear etc) brushed on the back of the accents to make them adhere to your buttercream
|I went with the Dooney & Bourke look
I used tinted buttercream and piped on the letters
