How I created this Dooney and Bourke Purse Cake

14 May

 

Dooney and Bourke Purse Cake.  This sheetcake with a purse was made with half chocolate and half white cakes, the cake was then covered in buttercream and the purse itself which is also a cake which I sculptured into a purse shape to look like a popular Dooney and Bourke purse that has ice cream pops all over. To create this look on the purse I covered the cake with buttercream and allowed it to set up. The next step was to cover with white fondant which is really just a sugar dough. I then cut ice cream shapes out of different colors of fondant and applied to the purse to create a replica of the designer Dooney and Bourke purse which can be purchased at finer department stores. The handle of the purse was also made out of fondant and dried over top of a large cup to get the rounded shape. The sugar pearls were hand strung with fondant and the ring and earrings were handmade out of fondant as well.
