So this cake was far more challenging to me than I thought it would be and surprisingly, it wasn't the purse.....it was the shoe box! Purse was done in about 3 hours and the darn shoe box took me easily 6-8 hours to complete. Mainly that was due to my own stupidity (fondant wasn't long enough) but I just couldn't get it to look right. After three attempts, what you see is what I settled on. Overall, I like the outcome. Shoe, Roses, Pearls, and Flowers are all gumpaste. Purse is Marble cake with chocolate filling covered in Satin Ice; Coach design was airbrushed on with Silver Luster. Shoe Box is Chocolate Cake with chocolate filling covered in Satin Ice. Martini glass is plastic but it's filled with red glitter gel.
