Martinis and Purses

Posted by Jennifer at 1:45 PM

Andrea wanted a graduation cake but I had to jump on her love of purses and martinis! She wanted a teal and chocolate brown color scheme with circles. The martini glasses are very subtle around the sides of the cake. I tried a purse cake once before and wanted to try a different style. The bottom cake is a strawberry lemonade cake with lemon buttercream. The top cake is red velvet layered with cream cheese frosting. This picture isn't the best in terms of color so I'm including another picture so you can see the light brown color. (Sorry that it's a bit blurry)

I also wanted to show the back of the cake. Same design elements and I tried to restrain myself from putting too many details on the cake (I've been told I can go overboard with my designs... crazy, I know! :)

Lastly, after carving the red velvet purse, I realized that Andrea probably needed more cake to feed her guests. I made a small side cake to go with this cake to feed a few more people. I used the same design scheme to match the cake.
