Help to those who have made both. Purse like coach or LV. For a total newbie beginner, which is easier to make? Thanks!

For a purse cake I use my rectangle bread loaf pan and carve the desired shape. Then I cut in half and add my filling. For a bag cake you would have to stack several layers. I have seen where they apply the fondant above the top of the actual cake and add fondant to look like tissue paper. Cute but more time consuming. I have two purse cakes in my pictures. One I made a fondant handle and the other I used the rim of a bucket lid covered with ribbon.

I did my first purse cake a few weeks ago. It was just 2 round 9" layers, buttercream in the middle and covered in fondant. It was a last minute job so not my best stuff, but it turned out cute, I think. Next time I will cut a flat spot off the top and make a flap. But it was pretty easy. I made the mini purse(also in my pics) from the part I cut off.
