I'm probably not the best person to give an answer but just my take on the thought. I would get a mold of the slippers and use gumpaste to fill the cavity. Allow it to dry. If you want them to stand up as in a cake topper, attach a dowel rod, straw or lollipop stick to them from the bottom.

For the ballerina, I would copy an image of one onto a frosting sheet, attach that to fondant that has been rolled out a little on the heavy side. Cut around the image, and allow to dry hard. About a day or two. Then attach a dowel rod or other item to make it stand.

Not the most creative, hth.

I don't know if this can help, but I'm working on this just now:¤t=Gymnasts.jpg

They are gymnasts, but the postures are similar to ballerinas. These will be attached to the sides of the cake. I also have to make a topper. So I will stick a thin wire inside and she will be standing on the top of the cake. These are only silhouettes, it you need a figure, there is this (fantastic site):
