This Lazy Town Purse Cake was for my daughter’s 6th birthday. The Lazytown cartoon was only out in the US for about 6 months when she had her birthday and I searched everywhere for Lazytown party supplies but couldn’t find anything!
Her favorite character was Stephanie so we started with that. I made a costume for her and purchased a pink wig and trimmed it into a bob. I then glued jewels to a burgundy fabric headband. She was able to wear the costume again for Halloween.
For the cake, we made Stephanie’s purse and carried the purse theme throughout the party. I baked a 9×13 cake and trimmed a skinny piece off of the end to put on top of the cake for the purse flap. The cake is iced in frosting tinted pink, then I used a texturizing tool to get the two different textures. A lighter pink frosting was used for the writing and for the heart, and then pink sugar was used on the alternating stripes in the heart.
I used red shoestring licorice for the purse handle and peeled pieces off to outline the heart and for the stripes. A foil covered chocolate egg was used for the purse clasp. The entire cake was put on a clear acrylic board cut to about 11×15 and the Happy Birthday was piped directly on that.
My daughter loved it even if most people didn’t know who she was!
