How to Decorate a Purse Cake with a Fondant Handle

Learn to make a purse cake for a kids' birthday party from Essential Cakes' Etwin Gordon in this Howcast video, part 5 of a 5-part series.


So, we have our purse cake and we have covered it with fondant. We've added some nice zebra stripes to our cake. We've given it a little zipper and next we want to add a handle. Now, it's up to you. You can either add two handles or you can give it one long strap. I think I'm going to give it one long strap. So, I'm going to use black since I've already used pink there. To do that you just take a piece of fondant and you're going to want to give it a little role to make it a little long. Going to add just a little cornstarch and sugar to our board. We're going to role this out. You can make the strap as long as you want as short as you want. I'm going to make it a little long so that it can hang down over our cake. I think this length is pretty good. Going to use my little cutter. You can make the strap as thick as you'd like as thin as you'd like. About here is good. And we're going to push in and role it out. Going to remove the excess. And then what you can do is just cut it. I'm going to cut it in this way so that I can just fold it into the little flaps. Alright. And what I'm going to do is I'm just going to tuck this part in. Going to add just a little water to it. I'm just going to kind of tuck that right in there in our litte flap. You can just let this hang over on your cake. And then I'm going to do this on the other side, as well. And there we go. We've added our strap. So, we've covered our cake in fondant. We've given it some zebra stripes. Made a nice little zipper and we have given it a strap. And I think this is a pretty nice purse cake.
