I started out with a half sheet cake and cut it into thirds. Stacking it with raspberry filling in between the layers and chocolate buttercream around the edge.
After frosting it, I rolled out fondant and covered each side of the cake. The top (red fondant) I rolled out and then cut to fit the top. I used a paper towel to make a template.
Then I just cut out animal print shapes and covered the cake. I had no pattern, just cut and fit.
Then I added details, like the strap across the top, the handle and the "change purse"
This what the cut cake looked like. I did add 2 layers of yellow cake to make it taller. I also added to dowels down the middle to help it stay standing. The handle did not make it to the party in one piece. =( But the cake was tasty and we had fun eating it.
The roses are made out of modeling chocolate.
