Step 3:

Now is the time to add a little texture to your fondant purse. We chose to be a little inspired by the classic Chanel 2.55 purses and added a little stitch-work texture using a quilting tool.

Step 4:

To make the opening section of your fabulous purse roll out a little colored fondant into a rope using a cake smoother. To do so roll into a ball until crease free then roll into a rough rope-like shape before rolling back and forth with a smoother.

Step 5:

Cut your fondant rope down so that when folded it measures around 3/4 of the length of the purse. When folded carefully pinch each end to a tapered shape.

Use a little edible glue to attach the opening of the purse to the body itself. Shape a little with your fingers to create a more defined look.

These in vogue and irresistible fondant purses are wonderful for any fashionable party. Why not create different purses for a collection of chic cupcakes? To add a personal touch add a glimmering monogram studded with tiny sugar pearls or sparkling with edible glitter! We also love the idea of each purse sat atop a fondant silk scarf hand-painted with eye-catching prints and designs!
