Coach Purse Cake

I made this cake for my friend Eva who celebrated her 32nd birthday today.  Happy Birthday Eva!  Eva is a fan of Coach purses, so I thought it would be fun to make her an edible one for her birthday!   This was my first purse cake and I was excited to try one out.  Since we had a small crowd, I decided to go with a "wristlet" instead of a full sized purse...a nice way to ease into a purse cake, I must say.  :)  I took at few pictures along the way.  Here they are!

This was after I did a rough cut and put ganache in between the 6 layers

Then I carved the purse shape
After the cake was carved, I covered the whole thing in ganache and then started to put the fondant on
Here's the zipper!

At this point, I forgot to keep taking pictures at each step, so we'll just jump to the finished product!
