.....I give you boring red purse cake instead. (aka the bowling bag)
So a friend at work, the one that ordered the Minivan cake for her MIL wanted a cake to celebrate her sisters 30th b-day. She just asked for a plain ol' chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream because she didn't get but a little slice of the minivan cake.
Since I had never tried my hand at a purse cake I asked if it was OK if I made one for her sister. She said sure and out came this boring ass cake, it looks so unfinished and needed something more but I wasn't feeling it that day. It's certainly not going in my list of favorites that's for sure because I think it looks like a bowling bag...all it needs is some gum paste bowling shoes or a bowling pin right by it. Oh well the cake inside got rave reviews and her sister loved it so it's all good. <--- a close second to "the whole nine-yards" this is worst saying ever sorry!
