One of these days I'll find the time to get to everyone's photos. Right now I just got back from Michael's (over $100 later. Gee, the price of GP has gone up. LOL - found lots of stuff that I probably shouldn't have bought - but did! icon_biggrin.gif ). Now I'm off to make those Jimmy Choo shoes. Wish me luck.

I cannot wait to see those Jimmy Choo chooes icon_lol.gif I mean shoes...... I have to tell yall.. I got this idea yesterday.. you know the cute kit they sell now with the molds for making gumpaste shoes that cost $80?? Well (cheapo here) decided to find something to substitute that form to dry the sole on... After looking Hobby Lobby over, and coming up empty handed, it occured to me>>>> duh... what not use a real shoe... you know... a REAL shoe to dry them on.. icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif Is that genius or what?? icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Will it work? I don't know, but I'm going to try it.... icon_biggrin.gif

Great tutorial Edna! It's to bad I haven't found the speakers for my computer from our move yet but you can be sure I'll be watching it again once I find them!

P.S. I just checked out your website! You have some absolutely amazing cakes on there! Too bad I wasn't closer, I'd have loved to take some of your classes...

Just stopped by to check on the winner.

Congratulations, Pinklesley1! You did an amazing job on your cake! Great details!

Jennifer/Kansaswolf, that was a tough competition and I do love the ingenius way you did your wave - for the life of me I can't seem to get my RKT moldings smooth. Don't know how you did it, but I thought it was fantastic. I also loved the piping on it, as well as 'Surfer dude'.

P.S., Jennifer, I tried your Cream cheese-based fondant and everyone loved it, including me (I was eating it like candy as well as using it on my cake!). It was very difficult to work with though (you did warn me), but, oh, so delicous! I assume it has to be kept refrigerated which is what I did and of course, it was humid as all get out on the day I made the fondant and decorated the cake. But thanks again.

I just posted the cake and the shoes. They're currently on the home page and if you miss them, please check out my photos (sorry, I forgot to link them here).

Yes, congrats to my wonderful competitor! I haven't been able to get on and check this thread since...Friday...so I was a little behind! Lesley, you did a GREAT job on your cake, all the detail and different colors! The umbrella was awesomeness too... icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and all the compliments on the wave were much appreciated! I worked really hard on that, it's so nice for such things to be noticed! icon_lol.gif I tried molding the wave twice, the second time I molded it right after I mixed the RKT. I think that helped the smoothness a tad. Then I iced it in buttercream too...

Sugar_Plum_Fairy, I'm glad you tried my fondant! I think everyone should have tried it before voting on my cake... icon_wink.gif It's a bear, but the taste is SO worth it... I always make extra for the snacking I *KNOW* will happen! icon_biggrin.gif I'll go check out what you did with it!

Hey Edna,

Finally found the speakers this morning, I've been hunting high and low so I could check out your tutorial. It was well worth it!!! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Edna .. What happens to gumpaste (anything) when it sits on buttercream for any length of time ? Anything? does it soften at all or get sticky ? Hows that work ? Thanks! Oh and can you show how to ice square corners to ?
