Pink Fashionista Cakes

This past weekend, I participated in a wonderful fundraiser called Toronto Bakes for Japan.  It was a volunteer-organized, Toronto-wide bakesale held at 6 locations over 2 days.  So far, we have raised over $20,000 with 100% of funds going to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

My contribution to the event was inspired from this wonderfully pink bridal shower cake that I made this past weekend.
I decided to make mini vanilla butter purse cakes.  They were all one-of-a-kind in a pink and brown palette.
I also made some chocolate sour cream cupcakes with fondant purse toppers.
 
Look how cute the purses were all boxed up and ready for the bakesale!  I had so much fun making these sweet things and met such wonderful people the fundraiser.  I hope we continue to raise additional funds to support Japan's relief efforts.

@Anonymous I wish it was that easy, I have tons of liquid, paste and gel colors - I just mix until I feel I get the right color. :-)
