High-Fashion Heels

with Elisa Strauss
Step up your cake skills with in-demand, fashion-forward sugar shoes. Create runway-ready heels with authentic designer details using valuable techniques and templates.

Create unbelievably realistic, custom sugar shoes with or without a kit. Join cake artist Elisa Strauss as she guides you step by step through making a strappy stiletto, a leopard-print peep toe and even a pointed mule. Make both high and low heels by hand or using a mold. Carve foam forms that help you shape the toe enclosures and ankle straps and stabilize the shoe while you assemble and transport it. Bring everything together with Elisa's construction tips and embellishments like contrasting insoles, trendy patterns, custom labels, metallic buckles and more. Create sugar shoes that walk the walk and outfit your cakes with sought-after accessories!

"What an awesome class! I have made many sugar shoes in my time and have taught multiple classes on the subject. Knowing how great Elisa is to learn from, I took this class anyway, and man, am I glad I did! I learned quite a few things that will take my shoe making to another level and so many tips and tricks to get an even more realistic shoe. This class is great for any level of cake artist and I highly recommend it! Great class as always Elisa!"
