Start with the Wilton Pattern Presses . Then you can check on You Tube for more help.
Is your GUMpaste storebought or homemade? Homemade paste tends to be a bit stiff if you're not careful when making it. Stiff paste dries faster so if you don't work quickly enough, stuff'll crack. Could also be that things aren't thin enough. Strange but true. Do the projects crack while they're being made or while/after drying? If you don't knead throughly so that the paste is SMOOTH, cracking will happen as it dries. How long have you been...

Run to the stationery store or hardware and grab a set square.Try that.
I've got the set and I'm not sure a pair'll fit nicely on a cupcake. However, I'd suggest you get the set. This one order'll pay for them! And then you'll have them on hand for other shoe orders. What I've done is make long formers from old gumpaste so I can make a set of soles and put them to dry instead of doing them one-by-one. Saves so much time.
