I have a cake to do in two weeks and I need to find a template or pattern for a baby running shoe. I am putting two of the shoes on a 6 inch round cake. Can anyone help me?

AHi! I used the template on cake central and enlarged it to fit my needs. Then I modified it by placing the sides of the shoes together to make one and photocopied it to make one piece so that there wasn't a seam. Hope this helps :-)

Thank you so much! I am new to using fondant/gumpaste so I appreciate the help. I will have to try this out this weekend to see how it does. Thanks again!!!

AYour welcome :-) When you are putting the shoes together make sure to place the backing on top of the sole and not around it or the shoe will be short and not work. Also if you dont enlarge the template they will probably fit on a cupcake LOL. I learned the hard way and they are very hard to make that small :-( Good Luck!
