Vintage purse cake - french vanilla cake with vanilla butter cream and fondant flowers.
So I drew inspiration from purses I have seen in vintage stores - the beaded handles always seemed to lay just askew, the big bead clasps that held it shut, and the strangely scattered patterns. I'm hoping the customer will be pleased and have a similar memory of these type of purses as I do.
So one of my biggest critics (aka my mom) told me that she just didn't see the purse in the cake (sigh). So I am back with a few more pictures of the final product that hopefully make this cake a little more understandable.
