I try to do this shoe in gumpaste with no success. I had a really hard time with the side of the shoe. Anyone try to do a similar shoe as this one. Can you give me some advice, tips or the complete instruction how you did yours.

I don't know how to make them out of sugar, but they're super cute!

Good luck.

Sorry I can't help you.

Honestly, if you have time to order the product and money to spend on it - I would buy this...

I haven't purchased it yet. But I made a shoe on my own and decided that the next shoe I have to make - I'll be buying this set. It looks so much easier than doing it myself.

Hope this helps.

Duh On me I thought you said the sole of the shoe.

Oh--the side? I'd just make a mold out of foam and wrap it with foil or something.

This is not the shoe I seen a while back... http://www.flickr.com/photos/robynlovescake/3461362424/ but the desired shape is similar to the one you are having difficulty making. I thought maybe you could contact the person who made the shoe at the link above for possible tips.

When I make ones with sides, I form the toe area first (place some plastic wrap wadding inside for support. Then, attach sides (one long strip) starting at the back then work toward the front one side at a time (depending on how large your shoe is...a short piece(cylinder) cut from a paper towel tube, or a clean, empty medicine bottle...whatever that is close to the same width as the shoe)...do this while the shoe is flat. After it's put together, carefully slide it up the shoe ramp to dry...you may have to adjust the pieces again if any shifted during movement. I find I fight with it less when I work with it flat then transfer.

I'll keep looking for that other one....

There's a pattern for a slingback in the sketches and patterns (?) gallery. With some adjustments, it could be made into a shoe similar to the one above.
