Maria, my sister, is my cake "manager." She's great at spreading the word of my cakes, especially to HR at work. And that's where this order came from. It was a last minute request. The only guidelines I was given was something "fashionable" and "fun" for her daughter's 13th birthday. I didn't have much time, so I wanted something relatively easy. When I searched the internet for some fashion ideas, purse cakes were all over the place. So I decided to go with that!
I took two 10" cakes, sliced off one of the ends and then stuck them together to make the shape. I was worried the cakes would tip over, but thankfully they didn't. I think the fondant helped keep them in place. I went with a pink zebra and polka dot pattern to make it girly and fun. The lady who ordered the cake gave me some pink and clear jewels to use, so I put them around the cake.
For not having a lot of time for this cake, I think it came out super cute!
