In the Galleries, there is a section calledSketches & Patterns & Templates It is under the title Miscellaneous.
I found this template there. There are also others, if this isn't what you need.

I don't know what booties you're talking about but I made a pair of booties for the top of a 9" round. Made 6 mini cupcakes - 3 for each bootie. One on top of the other for the ankle part and one for the toe, glued it all together with icing, then used the star tip to fill it all in, rose tip for a ruffle around the top and plain tip for the strings, then the star tip again for little pompoms. Really cute. I was told the mom-to-be took them off the cake and said she was going to freeze them for the baby's first birthday.

Mme_ K, many thanks for the help. This is exactly what I was looking for. I have a month to practice so I'll let you know how they turned out. Thanks again icon_smile.gif

There is a template for the booties but also you can buy a cutter at your cake supply store.
