I'm wanting to make the high heel cupcakes like these

They use store bought graham crackers which are hard to cut and I want to get a more natural shape.
Would the NFSC recipe be strong enought to be propped up like that?

Is there any other type of cookie that might work for me? I want the sole to be yummy. So I'm trying to avoid gumpaste and fondant as the sole.

I can't see the pic, it's blocked at my office. But, if you use NFSC and cut it thick enough and bake it thoroughly, it will be strong enough. I coat my cookies with while chocolate to make them stronger when I do structures.

For the graham crackers, I use a serrated knife to 'saw' them and they cut like a charm. I also heat my cookies and sugar cones in the microwave so I can bend them and cut them easily, just in case you decide to go that route.

Sweetflowers, thank you for your response. I would be covering them in white chocolate for looks anyway so that's good to know. I have some graham crackers at the house. I'll try the microwave trick because I'd rather use the graham crackers than make a bunch of cookies....For some reason I'm cookie challenged.

Just a note, certain types of cookies work in the microwave and some types don't. I've noticed types that are like fortune cookies, and sugar cones soften wonderfully. so those sugar cones will also make a good sole if the graham crackers don't work.

It's been while, but I think I started at like 10 seconds. Do it in bursts and you'll be able to tell when it's starting to soften enough to cut and shape.
