Any suggestions for the tip used to make the shoes on this cake?


Does it look like there is colored sugar on them and the rest of the cake as well?


Is an airbrush used for the grass and sky?


Any tip suggestions for the border and yellow brick road?


Any input, advice, and thoughts are appreciated.  Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

AYes, it's airbrushed. If you don't have one they have color mist spray available at craft stores-I've never used it.

There is some sanding sugar on the cake.

The Ruby Slippers are outlined with a small round tip and maybe a star tip filling it in (hard to tell from my little screen).

The Yellow Brick Road is a piping tip also, the one that makes ruffles, that's all it is ruffles.

Everything looks piped aside from the birds, flowers, and lollipops (I think she stated mmf was used).

Get creative and make your own version, it doesn't need to be a replica.

AI'm thinking that it's cake sparkles rather than sanding sugar scattered throughout the cake. It doesn't look like they used very much at all - just sprinkled a bit after piping/air brushing the details.

The shoes in the cake look like to me that they were piped with butter cream frosting with one of the star tips which where piped on very close together. I am no expert but that is what I see when looking at the shoe part on the cake. They do appear to sparkle which could be some sort of sanding sugar or sugar sparkles.


I only do as a hobby so lets see what the experts have to say as they have more expertise and pretty much can figure out just about anything on cakes.

Thanks everyone for your thoughts.  I will work on on figuring out the best way to put it together.  I'm sure it won't be a replica, but my daughter will want it to be close to a replica with her personality.  We may negotiate some of the details.
