What advice would you give someone starting this project? I found a heel template online and printed it out to the size I wanted it to be. I used fondant with a heavy dose of tylose, rolled it about 1/8 of an inch thick and let it dry for 4 days without TOUCHING IT. I used a foam core I shaped with a flexible board to the height I want. I also used the same material for the heel and that had to dry a day longer. Once it was dry I use a fine grater to achieve the flat part of the heel and the top and smoothed it out with a fine sanding paper. Once it was dry I used a paint brush and water and brushed the areas I would sprinkle with black disco dust...(I also used black fondant). Let this dry completely for several hours then I put it all together.

Gloria this is awesome. I love this cake and the stiletto on top. You are the best. I bake cakes but nothing like this, can I have the stencil for the shoe.

Hi Gloria , your shoe is stunning. Love the color of it and the cake. I am attempting a shoe of my own. I have a question for you how did you make the shoe stay on the cake and what size cake did you make. Love it very elegant. Thanks so much. Brenda
