When you make shoe strings for a fondant shoe, how do you lace them without the strings stretching out of shape or breaking?
It's just a illusion
Just make it look like it is going in the hole take another little "string" to go to the other hole... then take another string looking like it is coming out another hole
For the baby converse shoes I made I did the same...an illusion.
I made the holes, then I made the "shoelaces". I cut them and then tucked the ends in the lace holes. The crisscrosses underneath were the same...cut and placed. The bows were made and then glued on top.
I don't think there's any way to really lace and tie fondant!
I actually did it but after several tries. I added a little tylose to the fondant to make it 'stretchy' like gumpaste and that made it possible to do. Thanks for asking this question because if I had known that it was an illusion I would saved myself a whole heap of trouble!!
Thanks for the replies. I will give the "illusion" a try and see how it works.
