We are going today to my inlaws to celebrate Emma's birthday with Josh's family. I decided to make her a purse cake. I got the idea from parenting.com
Take two nine inch cake rounds and cut the top and bottom inch off of each.
I wrapped a piece of cardboard in foil and poked toothpicks through the bottom. I held one round in my hand while I iced one side and then added the second side. Them I set both of them on top of the tooth picks. I worked paper towel under it so that if I got messy with the icing I could just pull the paper towel out and it would take the mess with it.
I iced it orange and them used twizlers to make the E and the handle. The handle kept falling over so I put toothpicks in the ends and that held it up. I also cut come purple twizlers to add to the sides.
Then Lily got the job of placing the flowers around the upper border.
