Converse High top Sneaker Tutorial

Here is my attempt at a tutorial for the Converse HighTop Sneaker that i did for my daughter. It’s my first attempt at a tutorial, so big learning curve there, so please let me know if you have any questions!

One additional note added regarding the carving of the front bottom of the shoe…i noticed that my daughters shoe curved up in the front, so i carved a bit out from under the cake, leaving the cake board showing (unfortunately). I crumb coated it and it stayed put. so, while finishing up the details, i added a strip of black fondant to hide the gap between the toe and the cake board. Thanks for asking!

i used a 9×13 pan to bake and carved two shoe outlines and one extra square for the top of the high top piece. Hope that makes sense.
