first carved shoe cake..I made this using Nati's tutorial http://www.how2cakes.com/converse.html and I was pretty happy with the way they turned out. They were life sized and lots of fun to make. I used the WASC cake flavoured in vanilla and it was perfect for carving..ganache covering everything..then fondant. Made the "rubber" part on the toe look real by painting it with a mix of piping gel and water. Thanks for looking!!
