Gorgeous. Would you be willing to share your shoe template? Thanks.

Were did you find the template for the full piece cover for the shoe, or how did you cover the shoe in one piece. How much can I charge for this piece?

I have created a "lass", not sure how to spell this, out of styrofoam. This is similar to how a cobbler would have moulded leather when shoes were made by hand. I let the sole of the shoe harden for a day or two, then I add the heal, using a wooden down, fondant and royal icing. For the actual top of the shoe, I have created a few cut outs that I adapt to each shoe. Again, if you can think of how a cobbler would have moulded the leather, fondant/gumpaste is much the same. The glitter beads were purchased at a craft shop and applied using egg white, they are not edible. I think this answers everyone's questions. My shoes take about 3 days to make, including drying time. All of my shoe cakes start at about $350.
