Converse Sneakers

Converse Sneakers on Cake Central

Here is a closeup of the sneakers. When I do it again, I will paint over the sewing lines (that will make it more lifelike - I just ran out of time!), and I will work faster to hopefully avoid the cracks in the gumpaste...!

Thanks everyone!! Craftyone - I followed Stellastarchild's instructions - search for her and the instructions and template are in her photos!


okay, I just tried to make a pair of these and I was ready to throw them across the kitchen!!! How do you get the gumpaste cut out and assembled before it starts to dry and crack????


KHalstead - I used 50/50 gumpaste and fondant so it wouldn't dry so fast. Also I used a hunk of fondant inside for added stability (rather than the dough molds in the instructions). I hope that helps. These are kind of a challenge. Give it another try!!
