Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake This is a simple cake, but took time and a great deal of patience. The design on the shoe was pedal dust mixed with 2 different colors to get the color needed. Lightly dusted on the sides then gradually darkened towards the heel. With a clean paint brush and vodka, made the contemporary design. Fondant for the larger, bright white lines. The cap was made with rice krispy treats, covered with fondant. White airbrush paint to make the design, then used vodka and water once it was "tacky" over the splotches, to dry and complete the look used a bounty paper towel to dry excess.
