Hi Everyone, I have attempted a few time to try and carve a purse out of a cake...It NEVER looks like a purse, and today I ended up flipping it over and filling it and making a square cake out of it...Any suggestions on how on earth to do this? Any suggestions???
Hi, have you seen the Purse tutorial in the Article section here? If not, here the link,
I just started with sheet cake, cut into sections of 4 inches deep and stacked. I think I ended up with 6 layers high, and carved. I was making a big bag so there wasn't much carving to do, just made the bottom a little narrow and the sides rounded. Then I added cake boards between every two layers and dowels. Mine in my pictures if you want to take a look. When it was done, I put it on a foam core board and drove a sharpened dowel through the whole thing into the board to keep it from tipping. HTH
Here's another tutorial. HTH K'ly
