How To Make a Purse Cake

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to make a cake shaped like a purse

Items required:

Step 1 Bake a sheet cake 11×15 and cut into 1/3 Step 2 Stack your pieces on top of one another..

Here I have the wooden dowels showing, so you will know where
to place them at..

But you will push them down through
the cake, so that they dont show.

Step 3 Here I have crumb coated the cake in Crusting Buttercream,
then shaved a little off the sides to form a purse shape.
Step 4 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.
I used silver dragees for the metal accents.

Step 5 Ice the entire cake in Crusting Buttercream and awaits
it’s final touches.
Step 6 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

Step 7I went with the Dooney & Bourke look

I used tinted buttercream and piped on the letters
