A brilliant tutorial. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this, whilst working on an actual cake order!!
I would definitely use Choc ganache under the fondant. It helps to hold the shoes shape. I did a Nike shoe and put the fondant on one piece at a time to get the construction of the shoe correct. Even had the client loan me a shoe so I could look at it. Great tute!
What an excellent tutorial!! I have been wanting to make this kind of cake for a while now. I think I will try it out in May for my husband's birthday. Thanks for sharing!!
You're welcome! If you make one, please share photos of it with me on my FB page: www.facebook.com/saraelizabethcakesandsweets. I'd love to see how it turns out!
Great tutorial! Thanks so much for sharing. I have been wanting to do this cake for my grandson but too daunting. Thanks to your tutorial, I think I can do it!
Do you have a template for this online anywhere?
Thank you for this. In 2 months time we are celebrating my husband's 40th after he and I cross the finish line of our first marathon. This will be perfect!
Wow what a fantastic job on the cake and the tutorial. Thank you so very much.
I make cakes from home and have had a couple of requests for similar shoes but was afraid to do it until now. Can anyone help me with pricing? Not too much in supplies but pretty much a full days work. Would $200 be a fair price for something so labor intensive, or more?
I don't have a template--but all you need to do is what I did: visit saucony.com, or whatever brand site you wish, select the shoe you want to replicate, click on the images of that shoe from all angels available, and print them to the size you need. Instant template!
Yes! If I did this cake again, I would charge no less than $175, base price. It's very time consuming and detail-oriented, not to mention the skill required! Essentially, someone could buy a shoe cake, or a brand new pair of running shoes! ;). Priorities, eh?
Awesome thanks it is amazing
Awesome thanks it is amazing you can use white color instead of st ice fondant.
woww thnx so much...can u give us template ??
Hi Bumble bee: For my template, I just visited Saucony's website, picked a shoe style, then printed off the images they had (adjusting the scale during printing to the size I wanted) Here's the page where I printed off my shoe pictures to use a s a template: http://www.saucony.com/store/SiteController/saucony/mensomni12/4-113500/catId/cat10004/stockNumber/20206-1/skuId/***4********20206-1*M140/subCatId/cat1220399/showDefaultOption/true/productdetails
Six years ago I made a similar tutorial here in CC, for a Man's shoe.
In those days we didn't have a specific Tutorial posting place.
I posted it on the Forum
