Purse Cakes Plus “Baked” Cookbook Giveaway!!!

Thanks to everyone for your sweet comments about my niece’s birthday cake!  I had a great time doing it and it is so nice to receive such lovely compliments from all of you.  As a fun reward for being such a great blogging community I am going to do another giveaway (the real thanks goes to the “Baked” marketing team for giving me the books…THANKS!!!)  So make sure and check out the end of the post to get all of the details!

Before I share my mouth-watering photos of their salted caramel sauce I made I first wanted to show you the cute purse cakes that my students made last week. These cakes were filled, frosted, sculpted, and decorated in about 3 hours, so props to them.  Also, this was the first time most of them had attempted a carved cake, so I was doubly impressed! Hope you enjoy the photos!

Now onto the giveaway!  I have to say that I am absolutely smitten by the Baked cookbook!  The whole book is filled with gorgeous photos and mouthwatering recipes!  It has been by my bedside for the past month getting looked at over and over again.  I recently had the chance to try out their salted caramel sauce and I have to say that it is my new favorite flavor…this sauce will knock your socks off!  Here are the tempting photos I promised!  I will post the yummy recipe on Monday when I announce the winners!  

I forgot to mention that I am giving away TWO Baked cookbooks so get excited because your chance of winning just went up!  All you need to do to enter the contest is name the type of purse that you think I should make for my new purse cake that I am making next week!  Remember the deadline is Sunday night…can’t wait to hear all of your ideas!

    Chloe. Slouchy. :)

  3. Melody, beautiful job your students made. I think you should do some vintage style purse or my favourite purses / bags are Prada. As well as Alberta Ferretti http://www.albertaferretti.com/home.htm I wish you good luck.

    What about a purse with a picture on it. You see them at ‘tourist traps’ but it would be very different, everyone does LV.

  5. Gi says:

    Maybe not quite as high end as the beautiful ones you’ve done before but I love the Vera Bradley purses.

  6. Elizabeth says:

    Melody, I can’t say how much I love your website. You are definitely an inspiration. What about a burberry, though the pattern is a little overdone, I think it would be great to see it in cake form!

    YUM YUM that carmel looks terriffic!!! I could taste it right through the screen! LOL

    I vote for one of those white and cherry Louis Vuitton Bags… because it IS cliche, but it also different because it is slightly less popular than the traditional brown bags, and it would be more challenging to produce the finite pattern on it.

    My personal favorite are Franco Sarto bags, but they aren’t particularly fancy! lol

    I’m a big fan of the Juicy Couture bags because of all the details, especially with the chains. I’ve done a Kathy Van Zeeland purse cake that had some chain detail but nothing like Juicy does. I would definately pick one with lots of details because its definately more fun to create.

  9. Susan says:

    Oh – I wish you lived HERE! I want to take a class!!
    I liked them all, really – but the Chanel – well, I like that one the best.
    I am also going to make that caramel. Good GOD.

  10. Olivia says:

    I like the Chanel purse! Anything black and white is cute to me and I love chanel. Classy :)

  11. Carrie says:

    The Chanel purse and the silver purse at the bottom are tied for my favs! Great Job!

  12. Tammie says:

    Wow…they look wonderful. I love the Marc Jacobs bag…link attached. http://www.thebaglady.tv/38347795100.jpg

    How about a Marc Jacobs bags. It has great hardware and stiching that would be fun to make out of sugar. Can’t wait to see what you pick!! Love your site and thank you so much for sharing with all of us.
