Creating our first purse cake was easier than anticipated. Only after the first cake was delivered did we start on creating the design. We used 2 layers of cakes, one in chocolate flavor and one in vanilla flavor. We used cream cheese filling and chocolate mousse frosting.
Using a ruler, we measured the center.
Then, we made an even cut.
We only used one-half of the cake for the purse. We created another cake with the other half.
We crumb coated using the chocolate mousse. Then we let it sit in the refrigerator for about half an hour. To make the cake stand up, we applied buttercream on the cake board.
Then, we started decorating using white MMF (marshmallow fondant). We used the ribbon cutter from Wilton to create the quilt effect.
We then created the make up and bag embellishments.
