ADon't know about templates, but there are a couple videos on YouTube that are pretty good to watch for pointers. One lady actually too the shoe she was copying, wrapped it in plastic wrap, then traced her own template on paper. Hope this helps! I want to make one of these soon...they are so cool!

The most important parts of making a shoe cake is having a good image / impression of the bottom of the shoe (the footprint, literally), and the side view or profile of the shoe.  Print these out to the size you want your cake to be, making sure that both are scaled appropriately.  Basically this means that if the footprint is 10 inches long, make sure the profile is 10 inches long.  I start my laying the footprint on top of the cake and cutting the entire cake to match the footprint.  Once that has been done lay your profile template on the side of the cake and use that to cut out the profile.  From there it's just minimal sculpting / rounding / refinements.  Having the actual shoe on hand is very helpful.  Best of luck!!
