I made this coach cake for my friends birthday back when I first started cake decorating. She loves designer handbags, especially Coach, so this cake was perfect for her. The cake itself was chocolate with a hint of coffee, frosted in chocolate ganache and covered in tan fondant.
To make the classic coach C pattern I first printed out the C onto heavy card stock and cut out a template. I then used it to press the C outline onto the cake as a guide. Next I used brown food coloring mixed with a little lemon extract to paint in each C. All of the other detail work was done in fondant as well. I used white food coloring to paint on the stitching and gold luster dust to make the key chain.
If you like this cake you’ll also like the 3D Louis Vuitton and Coach purse cakes I made for the same friends Bridal Shower.
