Fondant Purse cake

I wanted to teach my students how to make a purse cake so I made this one to put on display.

I used one 1/2 sheet cake and cut it in thirds. Then I stacked it. I carved the cake the shape that I wanted then iced it with buttercream. I used chocolate fondant and covered the cake in sections. Front, back, sides, then the flap. The handle I made the night before so it could dry. The piping on the sides and the tassel were all made with a clay gun. The pink strips I just cut freehand and put them on with water. I did stitching detail in the handle, flap and corners. I was very happy with how it turned out.
