I have an event coming up that I would like to make come 3D cowboy boot decorations from fondant.  I have seen the template for one version on here which is extremely helpful, but I want to make the toe more pointed, like a traditional boot.  


Anyone have ideas or done something like this before?!


Much appreciated!

I would look for a chocolate mold that is 3D, ie: once you mold the two pices together, then you join them with a little gel, or edible glue.


I found 2 doing a quick search-


first pic is a rather large mold, 7" tall, but is $6 for the set of 2.


second pic is pricey $22, it is a soap mold, but I assume you could probably make your own with Barbie Doll or Ken boots, and some mold putty from HL.

I just did a search for "3D boot molds" and these came up

AI modified 2 templates I found on this site to make pointed cowboy boots. I have photos in my gallery. Sorry I haven't learned how to link photos from my iPad. hth

Thanks for the mold idea - I think I will invest in that for next time, but unforunately don't think I have enough time to order them for this cake!  I didn't even think of that though - GREAT THINK!


eringm - I saw the boots (red, right?)  Good work!  Do you still have the template you used for them?  I think I know the one you are talking about that you modified - so I'll try doing something similar!  Thanks so much for the reference - that's so encouraging to see it can be done :)
