I am trying to do a Coach purse for my sister's 40th birthday next month. I am new to all of this, so pretty clueless in a lot of ways. I saw a tutorial for the LV type of bag, but I really wanted to make more of a realistic almost u-shaped bag. Does anyone know of any tutorials to help with this?

I did a practice run today using the WASC cake, and I think maybe I need a firmer cake. Also, she is having about 50 people at her party, and I'm not sure what size cakes I should be using. Thoughts?

Thanks for your input!!

I don't know of a particular one, but whenever I'm looking for instructions I always try three places: YouTube, Flickr and Google. Try putting in something like "coach purse cake video" and see what you get from them. If there's something on CC, it will show up on the Google search (maybe even when it won't show up in a search on CC). Good luck with your cake, and please let us see some pictures when you're done!

I think WASC is perfect for that type of cake. I use it for anything carved, stacked etc.. definitely dense enough. However, the Choc WASC is a different story and much more crumbly. I would use the Hershey choc cake in recipes.
I usually go to youtube for tutorials if I cannot find one in my search on here, as well. You could tweak almost any purse tutorial, however. Good luck!
