I made this cake for a shoe contest a chain of stores in Toronto. I placed 4th out of a 1000 people ..so I guess that isn't realy that bad. The box is pastilage, the shoe and tissue paper are both made of gum paste. It all sits on a heart shaped fondant covered buttercream cake. I truly enjoyed making this cake and am looking forward to making another one. And yes.......I love the colour pink!
