Sugar Flowers in a Cake Purse

This is actually a cake that was made to look like a Purse with lots of gumpaste (sugar) flowers bursting from the top of the purse.  To create this cake I baked 3 cakes in loaf pans and leveled them flat so that they would stack then covered the emtire cake with Buttercream. The next step was to cover the cake with vanilla fondant. I cut out blue fondant flower shapes to decorate the outer sides of the purse. to create the purse handles I actually use a play doh factory, kids toy to make the rope shapes with fondant, but it is important to allow the ropes to set up a bit before attaching to the cake.

The gumpaste (Sugar) flowers were all hand made. I especially love creating the roses and calla lillies, however all flowers are beautiful to me. Which is why I designed this cake showcasing the beauty of sugar flowers bursting up and out of a purse but not a real purse but a Cake Purse.

Their are many things that can be done with cakes with just a little creativity and a few tools. I love the look on a persons face when they receive a cake that is not the usual grocery store cake that has been frozen for days before we purchase them, but sold to us as a fresh cake.  Whenever people recieve a custom designed cake it makes them feel so special which I think we all deserve to feel special more often then not. Custom cakes should tell a story about the person they were created for. A great example would be this Tiffany Box Cake that I created for my cousin Rhonda who loves EVERYTHING from Tiffany’s and it’s her favorite store. This cake clearly tells a story about Rhonda and the things in life that she loves.
