Important Note:

When I give the directions for the ivory piece that lays upon the front of the heel, I give the measurements in millimeters. This measurement should be in centimeters.

 

Part 1: Heel

You will want to wait at least 24 hours before continuing. The stronger your heel is, the less likely it is to buckle under the weight of the rest of the shoe. Remember to paint your toe tap black or tan.

 

Part 2: Sole

I find my shoes looks more realistic, and it is easier to work with if after applying the heel to the sole. Wait another 24 hours before finishing and constructing the shoe.

 

Part 3: Construction

I place my fondant platform high heel on a white cake carved into a shoebox shape, 13×8×4. You will need four layers, 13×8 inches. The filling in my shoebox cake is a lemon curd. I used a panel method to cover the shoebox cake in fondant.

I hope this video tutorial inspires you to create some wonderful and fun platform high heels!
