30th Birthday Chanel Purse Cake
This cake is a 14" round marble cake with fudge filling and cream cheese frosting. The purse is made out of 3 layers of 8" round cake (the same flavor, filling and frosting) and cut to look like a purse. The cakes are covered and decorated with fondant accents. The 14" cake is actually covered in a very hot pink. For some reason the photo makes it look more orange-y than it actually was. The pearls are also fondant and painted with a white shimmery luster dust. The picture does not really convey the sparkle and shine of the pearls very well. The handles of the purse are actually rolled to look like a rope handle, which you cannot see in the picture. The piping accents are all done with royal icing. It was a huge cake!!
