Red Velvet


Cake, baby!


Yes, this post is all about delicious cake, but just not the kind you eat.



It’s about the kind you can carry. I found this decadent purse online and just fell in love. First with the name of course, and then with the design. It’s from Petunia Pickle Bottom.


But, it’s not just a purse. It’s also a diaper bag. That’s right. Inside this not so little red number is a fold out changing pad, room for diapers and a plastic case for wipes. No one would ever guess. Unless of course they, too have had some cake.


Now, don’t feel like you’ve gotta go and get pregnant just to carry this purse. Petunia Pickle Bottom made the changing pad detachable so you can carry Cake even if you don’t have a little one in tow for a reason.


Did I mention the matching coin purse? Sweet.

Want it? Anyone?

Okay, if you do, leave a comment on this post for a chance to win the Red Velvet Cake purse.

All you have to do is tell me your favorite kind of cake. That’s it.

Deadline to enter is Monday, February 22 at 7:00 p.m. ET. Sorry, Time’s Up! Winner Below.

One winner will be chosen at random and announced sometime Monday evening on this post.

Good luck.

I’m glad you guys liked this purse so much. I’m just sorry I only have one to give away. I did make you a real red velvet cake though. Check it out. Now for the winner.


Judy, Judy, Judy! Congratulations. Carrot Cake with Red Velvet purse does sound like a perfect combo. You won.

  90. We get to taste lots of cake, but my hands-down favorite is vanilla with a light lemon filling and buttercream frosting!

  91. strawberry with coconut icing

  92. I think because of you, Bakerella, I’ve grown to love Red Velvet and actually cream cheese frosting too. I could never get passed putting my bagel spread on a cake! But it’s truly amazing! I may be the last to jump on the Red Velvet and cream cheese bandwagon but I’m on! But I’m not going to run out and get on the pregnant bandwagon, that’s for sure. No type of purse OR cake is going to get me to do that!! haha!!

  93. Farm House chocolate cake
    From The Farm House in Ellerslie, GA

  94. strawberry shortcake

  95. Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

  96. Layered Chocolate Cake with Cool Whip and Cherries…Yum. That purse looks good enough to eat!

  97. I just love cake. Period. Especially if it’s a cupcake :-).

  98. I love your blog and I love that purse how cool its named cake :) I wont go out and get pregnant for it but would love to use it as I walk into my wilton training in march :)

  99. Oh my is that just as cute as can be!
    I love chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, hands down my all time fav!

  100. I love carrot cake! Mostly for the icing though I will admit!

  101. blackforest cake is my weakness, yum tum tum!

  102. Red Velvet with Cream cheese frosting!! But, of course, a rich chocolate cake with chocolate frosting would never be turned down either :)

  103. This bag is SO cute!!

    In fact, I just made PW’s Chocolate Sheet cake today and I have declared it my very favorite cake. Ever. I doubt I’ll ever make anything else. :)

  104. I never say no to chocolate cake with ganache or frosting. And my latest obsession is with PW’s chocolate sheet cake. I’ve been baking it with extra cocoa powder in the cake and the frosting and it is the BEST comfort food.

  105. I actually REAAAAALLLY love German Chocolate cake, but everyone ALWAYS puts coconut on/in it, which completely ruins not only the taste, but the texture for me. It’s annoying, having an actual German family that loves German Chocolate (complete with coconut frosting!)

  106. white cake with buttercream icing

  107. I do love pineapple upside down cake. But I really love the caramel cake and a lemon cake that my grandma used to make. The caramel icing was not unlike a praline minus the nuts. And the lemon cake had an icing that was cooked and came out like a fudgy consistency. She would double the icing recipes so there would be lots!

  108. I love a lot of cakes…but one of my favorites is BTS cake for sure!

  109. Carrot cake!

  110. i covet that purse!!!

    i love a good chocolate cake w/ cream cheese! oh yum!

  114. I love whole wheat banana cake with cream cheese frosting.
    Please pick me, I’m expecting in a few weeks!

  115. carrot cake. sounds pretty good anytime of day; with coffee for bfast, for lunch with milk…oh i am getting hungry for some right now for late diinner :)

  121. Southern Living’s Chocolate Velvet Cake…so moist, so many options.

  126. My favorite is chocolate eruption cheesecake: chocolate cream cake with turtle cheesecake, nuts, and chocolate chips with an Oreo-like crust. Too good for words!

  127. It’s a toss up between carrot cake with cream cheese frosting or Better than Sex cake.

  128. i really like…hehehe sara lee’s pound cake…still semi frozen…

  129. oh, me! me! me! Pregnant with baby #3 must qualify me…right about now ANY cake sounds just right…make that anything made from scratch. I do make a chocolate chip coffee cake with sour cream which is just delish!

  130. My favorite type of cake is hummingbird cake! Also? That purse is to die for! I love my diaper bag (you wouldn’t really know it was one), but I would love that purse for my more stylish days.

  131. I love any kind of chocolate cake :)

  132. Chocolate cake with chocolate icing or strawberry with vanilla buttercream icing.

  133. I want it please!! And right now, because I have both of these are in my refrigerator…I’d say my favorite cake is chocolate cake with pudding and red velvet – but in cupcake form.

  134. I love White Chocolate, Lemon Marshmallow cake! It is a vanilla cake with a layer of lemon curd, a layer of creamy white chocolate ganache and topped with marshmallow – devine 8)

  135. german chocolate cupcakes filled with chocolate buttercream…YUM!

  148. I love all cake, but my favorite classic is probably chocolate cake with vanilla frosting.

  149. I have always loved red velvet cake, and now I have found a decadent chocolate intoxication cake that rivals my red velvet love. That purse is absolutely beautiful!

  150. I love White Almond Sour Cream cake, but really I wouldn’t turn my nose up at any type of cake.

  151. not a traditional “cake”, but LOOOOOOVE cheesecake! that’s it, plain cheesecake, no special toppings…

  152. I love chocolate cake! Any kind! And usually cream cheese frosting goes great with it! Yummm

  153. Vanilla w/ buttercream icing! Yum yum :)

  154. Wow…. Fave cake?!?! That’s a tough one …… My first thought was red velvet…. or strawberry….. but for this south GA girl, I’d have to go with a good old fashioned pound cake… b/c a pound cake is about the cake – not the icing/cake combo…. I could literally eat the whole thing in one sitting… Mmm… CAKE!

  155. Triple chocolate cake with whipped cookies n’ cream filling and vanilla buttercream frosting!!
