This is probably a bit much for a 16 year old. Since I"ve been wanting to try a purse cake, this what she is getting. She did not want a birthday party so this will be a total surprise. Texture on the purse was done using crumbled up aluminum foil. Shoe was done using a template made from one of my shoes. Found a way to make template w/o ruining the shoe and it worked pretty well. Had a little trouble with the heel. The only mould used was the onlay on the shoe.
