Happy Sweet Sixteen- Purse Cake


This has been a week of birthday cakes. I have had 3 due in little less than a week. Not that I am complaining mind you. I have enjoyed the rush immensely!

The purse is a firm butter vanilla cake with simple vanilla buttercream under the fondant.

It was for a Sweet Sixteen party, can you tell :) I was told that the teen was so tickled that she saved the plaque part with her name.

Here is a closeup of the gumpaste handle. To form the handle I let it dry over a Moose's Tooth growler.

Another Angle.
Well back to work. One more cake due on Thursday. Then out to dinner for my birthday!

You did an awesome job!!! You must have nerves of steal and the patients of a saint. I would love to be able to do stuff like that.

Michele - Thanks! DD is the master though. I am just a lowly grasshopper!

Danielle - I was told once when I was rebuilding an engine in HS that I had the patience of Job. Maybe it is true!!
