the best place to find ideas is google!! simple browse for shoe box cake and you ll get lots of good pictures and for sure at CC!!! tylose is a powder you put on fondant to make it hold the shape and to dry faster. It's great for modeling where you need to hold a round shape etc. It is also known as CMC powder. A good option at michael's is gum paste from wilton , they must have it in powder option or premade, but i think premade option is too expensive. HTH
