Awesome shoe, awesome purse, awesome colour combination
WOW! HOW AWESOME!!
You did an amazing job!
AWESOME! Are you willing to share "insider secrets" on the construction of both?
Thanks, all. Sure, I'll share my secrets. The shoe was inspired and guided by "socake" -- she posted a picture back in March of the most incredible shoe. Anyway, I drew my pattern from one of my daughter's shoes. Waited 3 days for the sole to dry! Then couldn't figure out how to get the toe to look right, so wrote to "socake" and she kindly shared her tutorial with me. My shoe isn't nearly as glamorous, gorgeous and perfect as hers, and it's hardly true to scale. No human could actually w...
Just fabulous!!! Love it...
WOW is right! This is so wonderful! What an amazing job on the details. Too good to eat!
(con't)... wear that shoe, the way it's configured! Anyway, the purse is a 9x13 cut into thirds, iced with buttercream and covered with fondant. Wanted to do a brandname purse of some kind, but didn't think my skills were up to it, so just did a generic purse that went with the (very slumped) shape of the cake. The cake slumped from rampant humidity, heat and rain here. I had to take it apart and do it over, while keeping it in the fridge in between fondant layers! Oh well.
Thanks, she was thrilled. Wants to keep the shoe forever. I need to find one of those clear acrylic shoe boxes to store it in. And no one knows yet that those pink ribbons were added at the last minute to cover up the crack in the white fondant of the sole of the shoe!
How impressive! I know I won't be able to do that good of job, but thanks for the tips!
wow wow wow so awesome!
Love it! The straps are what make it so different and pretty, I think. Gotta love doing "cover-ups!"
Wow!! This is great? Would you share the tutorial with me? firstname.lastname@example.org
great job-love the colors!
WOW - double WOW; you did an amazing job. both look so perfect. how did you get the shine on the purse ?
The shine came from the fact that I had to keep putting it in the fridge because of the heat and humidity.
Wow!! That is just amazing!!! She's one lucky girl!! :D
Awesome..There it goes into my favorites...:)
