This cake was made for my sons girlfriends 18th birthday last year. She is shoe mad, so there was never a doubt what style of cake I wanted to make for her, only weather or not I could do it.. I didn’t have the shoe former or template, just cut it by hand and had objects around the house stacked for it to sit on to dry and managed to make it in just over a day. Take notice of the cake itself, it was mauve , got up the next morning and it had faded to blue. Last time I ever used that brand of mauve, so I added the silver and black ribbon to try and make it look a little more girly. The bling is non edible

Pauline it was chefmaster 7386 violet, it actually did it to me twice, first time I thought it was because it may have got a little direct sunlight, with the shoe box though, I didnt finish covering the cake till way past dark, and was up early efor light, and there was no lights left on during the night. Dont know if it was a bad batch but not going to risk buying another one to test either lol
