Classy Red Shoe Cake

Do you sell this cake? Yes Name of website or online shop My Shop Link to website or online shop areinsbach.blogspot.com Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake I baked my cake and covered the cake in black fondant. I used a rolling pin and crisco to put rolled fondant on my cake. I cut white pieces out and placed them on the cake to look like stripes. I used a pearl mold for the red pearls on the bottom border of the cake. I used a gumpaste shoe template to make the shoe on the top of the cake. I found the template on cakecentral.com. I made it a few days a head of time to it could dry. I used edible glitter to pu on the shoe and black fondant for the bow. White fondant is put in the inside of the shoe. What are you most proud of? Of course the shoe! :) But, it all came together nicely and the customer loved it! :) What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would watch some videos online on covering a cake in fondant. It can be pretty tricky to get the fondant really smooth. I have been donig cakes for a couple years, so of course, practice makes perfect! :) My black fondant it Duff's fondant that you can buy at Michaels and is awesome! I used homemade buttercream fondant for the white stripes. You can find all kinds of fondant recipes online. Just email me if you have any questions! I would love to help you out! :) areinsbach.blogspot.com
