My friend is graduating from podiatry school this year and I really want to make a cake shaped like a 3D foot! Any tips on how I can carve out toes without having them break off while I'm carving? Maybe I can make them out of modeling chocolate but I haven't used it before.  Any ideas?? TIA! icon_biggrin.gif

Wow, there are some ugly foot cakes out there!

I'm sure you'll make a nice one. When you carve the toes, you could just make a groove, not cut all the way through, then make the "separation" a slightly darker color to create depth.

That's a very smart idea! I didn't think of making grooves initially but I think that would do the trick!  And yes, I agree, all foot cakes are either very good or very messy lol icon_confused.gif but thank you for your input, I really appreciate it! :)
