Buttercream

A while back I gave away the cutest little clutch. Anyone remember? It was from the Petunia Pickle Bottom Line called Cake. The color was called Red Velvet. Too cute. The Cake line of purses are actually diaper bag styles disguised as super fashionable handbags. But don’t let that keep you from falling in love with them. You can totally use this as a regular purse. It’s made of Italian cut velvet and coordinating wool tweed. It has lots of pockets, cute Cake zipper pulls and comes in fun “flavors.”

Anyway, last time I bought the clutch to give away because I loved the look of it and of course the name… Red Velvet Cake clutch… hard to resist.

But recently Petunia Pickle Bottom contacted me and offered one of their full-size Cosmopolitan Carryall bags for a giveaway. A big one. Yay for you guys!

This time the color is Buttercream… and it’s gorgeous.

Take a look…

Good Luck! And if you stumbled on this post looking for buttercream frosting, here’s a recipe for the one I use most of the time.

Okay. Okay. It’s time to announce the winner. Lots of people love this purse… including me. Sorry that there’s only one to give away. And that winner is comment #3638 – Sally!  Yay Sally. You’ll be super sassy when you carry it. Congrats!

Love the buttercream (the frosting and the purse). But perhaps a creamy brown Cinnamon Chai? Or Pumpkin Spice?

A friend gave Petunia Pickle Bottom clutches as bridesmaid gifts. It has been used many times in the last 6 years. Would love to have another, and these are beautiful!

Honestly, at first I thought for sure I would stick with Buttercream…dreamy, but then scrolled and I caught sight of Licorice Pudding {oh my!} and then Red Velvet {ooh, la! LA!!} and then Appletart and thought I just might pass out from sugar overload. Heavenly…all of them. Petunia has outdone herself this time. Loved it!!
