Stiletto straps - anyone know how this was done?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I contacted the baker, but haven't heard back yet. I assume, just shape the wire (18 g?) add strips of fondant (hardened with tylose) and add the rhinestones? If anyone has any more thoughts, tips or light to shed on this, it would be great!

I just had a shoe-gasm...THEN I had a cake-gasm. Oh! Um..sorry, I haven't a clue how this was done but your idea seems sound. Try it and see.
There's a tutorial

that you can use as a starter and play around with it

The strap could have been made off the cake and then stuck on with royal icing. It definitely was wrapped around something to hold that form.

Totally random, but I just pictured myself trying to walk in that thing........yeah........lol
It looks like gum paste wrapped around a thickly gauged wire, set to dry and then glued onto the shoe under the big pink rose.
Not sure who the maker of these "shoes" are, but they have AMAZING skills.

I did this for a shoe I made for my daughter 2 years ago.  I used a heavy gauge wire.  Shaped it the way I wanted it and then formed half gum paste/fondant around.  It worked.  The strap on the other shoe didn't use wire, used pure gum paste and wrapped it around crumbled up piece of foil that I shaped in the way I wanted it to "fall".  That worked as well as the wire.  Didn't want to chance it not being supported when it was suppose to look like it was free falling.

thanks so much

I think I'm making  it  with wire..to have more support , I'm scary about falling apart during delivery, maybe I'm not doing this  to thin .

thanks!!

I didn't have to transport it but using small packing peanuts would work.  If it was me, that beauty would be in MY lap!!!

Hi White Angel,

 

Please advise how you did the heel. It looks really thin and I am worried about the support on the top end of the heel.
