Have you emailed the person at that site for help? That is normally what we do when we see something we like. Usually the person on the other end will help if they can. Just a thought!

This shoe is made at the Planet Cake Course in Sydney Australia - it is not something that is easy to explain in writing - but it might help you to know that the straps are formed on acetate and the rounded part of the heel is polystyrene on end of a wooden skewer (which is left uncoated for half its length so it can be inserted to secure to cake)

Oh - and it is made using flower paste (for strength)
