So I have a bridal shower cake and the bride wants me to copy her shoe on the cake. I have made shoes before but never a sling back like this:

My worry is the support for the back strap... SO, do I make the heel and sole and assemble them together to dry, then let the top dry on something else and assemble it after? OR should I assemble all three pieces and use dowels or paper towel or something to prop up the back strap while it dries.

Also, does anyone PLEASE have a template for this type shoe?? I looked online here but didn't see anything for a sling back...

any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

p.s. afterwards, I may just have to buy a pair of these shoes for myself lol

There is a template here on CC for making a slingback shoe. I guess you can do a search in patterns/template for gumpaste shoes or shoe template.

PS. Keep in mind when doing this show, the CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN Shoe has that distinctive red sole.
