I'm going to do a gymshoe cake for my daughter for party on Sunday, but I can't figure out how to make the shoe strings have the "laced" look . Please help me!!!!! Thanks in advance....
Basically you can just criss cross fondant strips. You can roll out some fondant and use a pizza cutter to cut strips the width of the laces, that is, if you're thinking of making flat laces as opposed to round. (I have a pasta cutter that cuts out multiple strips at once. I use it for everything!) Make some shoe "eyelets" from fondant with a #10 decorating tip and use a smaller tip to cut out the inside hole. Place these on the shoe. When you criss cross the laces, tuck them down inside the "hole". Does this help at all? And have a real gym shoe handy to look at (along with a nose clip)
Thank you so much! I'm in the middle of working on my daughter's cake righgt now. I'm gonna keep my fingers crossed
You could use a claygun, too.
cut spaghettit strips from fondant and criss cross them up the shoe make sure you pink the veryends into a thin cylinder to mimick the platic coated ends of laces, makes them look really realistc!
