Hi. Just use the search function and type in 'how to make a gumpaste shoe' There is step by step article on this. Also, I haven't tried making a shoe personally, but from what I've read gumpaste might be a better idea to use since it hardens better...Hope this helps icon_smile.gif

Hi, I would go for gumpaste. And here is a great video from Pink cake box. There are three parts on that.

I used the mini shoe tutorial on here before and I just recently tried Pink Cake Box method. I liked PKB way better. Hers is a lifesize shoe. I went to a discount store and purchases a new pair of heels for 3.00, they always have ugly shoes I tore the shoe apart and used it for templates which I made on a file folder cardboard. The base of the shoe makes for a perfect mold. The only problem I had with her method was letting the heel dry first. It never seemed to fit right like I thought it would when it dried. I ended up molding one, inserting the skewr for support and attaching in while still soft. It worked much better. There is a photo of the finished shoebox cake in my photos.

I loved the PKB tutorial as well. Unfortunately, I had to make a pump style shoe which ended up be very challenging. I haven't found a tutorial for a pump show. Most are mules or sandals. Definitely use gumpaste or fondant with tylose (that's what I used since I needed it to be black). I have a picture of my shoe in my photos.
