I need to make baby converse shoes in MMF (no tylose/gumpaste)...anyone done this? Im hoping it will dry and hold its shape.

Ive looked at the template and instructions...and wanted to know ...can you make the sides (numbered 1 and 2) in one piece? Or is it 2 pieces joined at the back?

Any tips for this shoe? Im getting nervous!

Cake Central forums are FULL of helpful tips. If you run a search using the term 'converse', a ton of threads come up. Reading through them was very helpful for me.

Here is a thread that I participated in a while back there are some pictures there too.

I did cut out the main body of the shoe in one piece.

Don't be nervous - have fun.

Edited to add: If you are not mixing in any gumpaste, tylose or gumpaste they will take longer to dry.

I did this one completely out of MMF. I made the baby shoe pattern into a hightop for a teen birthday cake. I don't put crisco in my MMF. And I gave it a week to dry out.

I use MMF exclusively and there is no problem with the drying out. I would give it 3 days or more. As to, the template, it's easier to cut it out as 1 piece as the whole shoe is more uniform that way.
Good luck!
