Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Carved the cake some, used a mold to make chain for the purse, painted the fondant chain with vodka and silver dust, made shoe heel about 4 days in advance, used a heel mold, shoe is fondant and tylose powder.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would mix gum paste with fondant instead of tylose powder for the heel. Then I would put a skewer in the heel to attach to the sole.
