A designer purse, such as those by Coach, Louis Vuitton or Chanel, is popular with many women, making a designer purse-themed cake appropriate for a woman's event. The event could include a birthday party, a girl's Sweet 16 party or even a bachelorette party. Choose a favorite purse designer as the specific theme for the purse cake or use a variety of different designer purses for inspiration. Be sure to research the purses you intend to use, so you can display the edible purse decorations accurately and with precise detail.
Things You'll Need
- 9-inch round cake pans, 2
- 9-inch round cakes, 2
- Serving platter
- Metal spatula
- Food coloring
Bake two 9-inch round cakes and remove from pans.
Chill cakes for approximately 45 minutes in the refrigerator.
Cut the bottom of both cakes off, about a quarter of the cakes, and set aside.
Mix vanilla frosting with a few drops of food coloring in the desired color to create the bag color of choice.
Coat the bottom and inside of one cake with frosting and stand upright on a serving platter.
Coat the inside and bottom of the second cake with frosting and press the two cakes frosted sides together. The frosting serves as an adhesive to bond the two cakes together.
Coat the cakes with frosting. Run the spatula under hot water and run it over the cakes to smooth over the frosting.
Chill the cakes in the refrigerator for another 45 minutes.
Add decorations to mimic a designer bag. Add strands of licorice for bag handles. Trim string licorice into small lines and assemble them together to form initials, if found on the bags. Use small candies or fruit snacks to form other decorations, such as flowers or patterns.
