AMy sister is having a baby and I am planning the shower on a very tiny budget. I am in the middle of a huge me pretty much across the county so things are tight. I wanted to do a baby but I can't find a mold in any store near. So I seen these Mary Jane shoes I would like to try an make, the rest of the cake is still up in the air. Talking about budget, I use mmf but never anything like gum paste. Is there a way to make it, but with out the tex stuff you find in the stores. It's not a pretty penny here at all, even buying it premade. I seen someone say something about gelatine. I do have some if that, can this be done or is there another other way. Any advise welcomed also. Her shower is next weekend on the 9th. Thanks so much.

You can buy ck gumpaste powder, you just mix with water, it goes for about $5 a bag here.

 

Are you wondering how to make the shoes, or did you get a mold for them?
