I’ve seen a lot of cake art, but these take the….well, you know. What look strikingly like chic clutch purses aren’t purses at all. They are incredible, entirely edible purse-shaped cakes that are completely fondant-free, preservative-free and made with only the finest, real ingredients.

Bohnhoff & Kent is Los Angeles’ premiere Chocolate Art company, founded by renowned sugar artist Cory Pohlman (who has appeared on the Food Network’s Cake Wars), and confectionary chef Olivia Harris. With Lady Gaga as their first client, B&K Chocolate found a niche in creating chocolate art pieces ranging from small luxury gifts, to large installations, party centerpieces, and wedding cakes. Their purse cakes are made with a hand-painted and decorated chocolate shell that is filled with cake.
