How to Make Purse Cupcake Toppers

Girly accessories are a great addition to any cake or cupcakes.  A simple purse is easy to make!

Here is what I used:

Purple and black fondant
rolling pin
triangle cutter
gum glue
zacto knife
#8 round tip

Purse1 (2) (525x441)

Step 1: 

Roll out the fondant — here I used purple.  Roll it out to about a 1/8 inch.  Using the triangle cutter make a cut.

Step 2:

Using the Zacto knife, cut the top off the triangle,  about 1/3 of it.

Step 3:

Using the gum glue, apply a small amount to the part of the triangle you just cut off and place it onto the bigger part of the original triangle as shown in the picture below.

Step 4:

Roll out a small piece of fondant in another colour — here I used black.  Roll it out to about 1/8 of an inch.  Using the #8 round tip, cut out one circle (using the tip end).

Step 5:

Apply a small amount of gum glue to the tiny circle and place it on the purse as shown in the picture below.  This will resemble a purse clasp or button for decoration.

Step 6:

Roll out a small amount of black fondant into a “worm” shape.  It needs to be thin enough to resemble a purse strap.  Once you have rolled it out, using the Zacto Knife to cut off a 1-2 inch piece.

Step 7:

Using the gum glue again, place a tiny amount onto each end of the “strap” and attach it to the purse.  Allow the entire purse to dry for 10-20 minutes and then you can place it on your cake or cupcakes for decoration.
