There are several talented people out there who make cool cakes. One that I have been wanting to try is a shoe box cake. The shoe box? Easy Peasy. The shoe? Not so much.
I went on Cake Central's website (wow, that site is addicting!!) and found a tutorial on how to make a shoe out of gum paste. This Sunday, while the kids played a video game and David watched..probably Stargate, I sat down for my first attempt.
Here is what I made, before adding glittery dust to it. The support for the arch is too high. Next time, I'll able it better to get a better arch.
Here's a top view. See the "designer" label? :)
So, yea. Ignore the rough edges. It's my first one, but I am glad I have the tutorial to show me how!
