Furry Purse Cake

Ingredients
1
8- or 9-inch baked round cake layer (any flavor)
1
recipe Creamy White Frosting or two 16-ounce cans creamy white frosting
 
Desired food coloring (optional)
2
sour red licorice straws
2
chewy fruit-flavor oblong candies
4
large fruit-flavor ring-shape jelly candies
2
desired licorice twists

Directions

  1. Using a serrated knife, cut cake layer in half crosswise, making two half-circles. Using a small amount of Creamy White Frosting, sandwich the two half-circles together. Place cake, cut sides down, on a flat serving platter.
  2. If desired, tint the remaining white frosting using food coloring. Spread a thin layer of frosting over the entire cake. Generously frost cake, swirling or piping frosting to make peaks to resemble shaggy fur. Place licorice straws down center of cake where the two half-circles meet.
  3. Place chewy oblong candies in center of cake to make a clasp. For purse handles, place two jelly ring candies on each licorice twist. Insert handles into top of cake. (If handles don't stand up, you may need to insert toothpicks into ends of licorice to anchor them; remove toothpicks before serving.)

Creamy White Frosting

cup shortening
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla

Add 2 tablespoons of the milk. Gradually beat in remaining powdered sugar. Gradually add milk until frosting reaches a spreading consistency. Makes about 3 cups.
