Decorate Purse Cake with Fondant Zipper | Birthday Cakes

We have covered our purse cake in white fondant
and I’ve decided to go with the zebra-stripe theme, so I’ve added some zebra stripes. Now what we’re going to do is finish it off
with a little zipper and a strap. I like to combine colors, so I’m gonna use
pink for our zipper and I’m also gonna add just a little border along the bottom. I’ll do that in pink as well. So you’ll take a piece of pink fondant and
you’ll give that a little knead just to soften it out a little bit. We’re going to add some cornstarch and sugar
to our table. Now I’m going to try to get a long enough
piece to go around the base, so I’m just going to try to roll this into kind of like a sausage;
this way you get a longer roll. I’m gonna use my smaller roller. I’m gonna try to roll it out as long as I
can get it. I just want to make sure it’s even and all
spots off, I can just rub a hand across it, and you’ll actually feel where the fondant
is a little higher. All right. I’m gonna go this out enough. And I’m gonna use my six-cutter, pizza cutter. Now, I don’t want it too big, so I’m actually
just gonna leave this close, and you wanna push as hard as you can, so it cuts it. This is great, because you’ll get multiple
straps in case it’s not long enough, I can just add a piece. So I’m gonna try to find the longest piece. I’m gonna turn that over and I’m just gonna
add a little water to the entire strap, and that’s gonna help stick it onto my purse. All right. So you can decide where’s gonna be the back,
where’s gonna be in front. Just in case it’s not enough, we can add piece
onto it. So, I’m gonna use this as my front and what
we wanna do is just take the band, put it all the way to the bottom. I’m just gonna take your hand. And you wanna try to stop in the middle. So, I’m gonna bring this piece around, and
you’re going to take your fingers and push it in so it sticks in your cake and then you
just take your little knife, I can use this tool, and dent it, and just cut it. Maybe I have to add just a little water in
some spots where it’s not sticking, and there you have a band for the bottom. Now I’m gonna use one of these same strips
and I just wanna kinda create a little zipper that’s gonna go right here in the middle. So, probably won’t need more than that long,
so I’ll make a little dent with my fingers. I’ll break it off right here. Now you can add as much as you like to this
cake. It’s up to you. This is another little tool that you can use
for this purpose, also. If you want some squiggly lines at the end
of your stripes, you can use this. In this case, I’m just gonna use it down the
middle, so it’ll make it look like it’s a zipper. Then I’m gonna add some water. And I’m just gonna put this right here in
the middle. That’s gonna give the appearance that our
purse has a zipper. What I want to do is just make the two little
loops that you may see on a purse sometimes. So, just gonna roll a little piece of fondant
that I have left over. Just gonna roll it out. And I’m just going to cut out a piece, make
sure that they’re, they’re even. Even them out across the bottom. We can make these round, you can make these
oval; it’s up to you. I’m just gonna go over them real quick, just
with this tool, just to oval them out and also just become a little flap here for the
ends. Add a little water, just to the end part of
it. I’ll just stick that on right here, towards
the bottom. So, we’ve added the two flaps to our zipper,
our purse is almost done, next we’re gonna add the handle.”
