Class Overview

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!
