Then I did a gel transfer of just the souls side by side on the cake. I then traced them with buttercream and filled them in with tip 16 stars(hot pink). Then I used some edible pearls for the straps...but you could use icing. I then put graham crackers around the shoes for sand. It looked sooooo cute and the little girl loved it! I wish I had a picture to show you, but I have not yet developed the film! Anyway, I hope that all made sense!
