It's Juicy

Here is my newest cake creation! It's a Juicy Purse for one of my co-worker's daughter who is turning 15, loves Juicy purses and loves pink. I was in a mad rush to get it done due to lots of snow (being stuck at work) and lack of time; therefore, some of the details are not as nice as I would like them, but I am proud of the way it turned out for my first cake purse! It was fairly simple to make. I used a 9 X 13" cake pan and than halved the cake and layered the halves using buttercream icing. I than covered the entire cake with pink fondant and added some brown fondant at the top of the cake. For the bow, I used a darker pink fondant, shaped the bow and let it dry for 24 hours. I traced the "Juicy" letters and than carved them out of fondant. For the ribbon on the top of the purse, I wrinkled some fondant to look like fabric and than added some graments around them that I painted gold. I made the strap out of brown fondant and added stitch marks (although, you cannot really see it in the picture). Finally, I added a little gold heart, painted it gold and added on a pink '15'! I hope she likes it! Happy Birthday J!
