Only using cutters but never free hand.

Yes I have I used my American Girl Doll Shoes as molds. I covered them with plastic wrap and left the pieces on them to dry. If you don't have an american girl doll you can get the shoes at any hobby store pretty cheap. I'll try and add a picture of them

How'd I do it??

I eyeballed it with some helps.

I printed off the profile of the shoe on the computer and enlarged it to the size I wanted and used that as a guide--easy peasy.

the black part is marzipan

the white is fondant

just poke a dowel in their for the eye where the shoelace goes then take a paint brush and silver paint it just by like circling squiggling it around in there

take it step by step

really a very easy sculpture
