fondant ballet slippers - HELP! - Page 2

post #16 of 49
A clay gun is a small metal tube with discs to fit on the end. Look in Michael's where the fimo clay is. It's about $10. This isn't the best claygun, but will get you through.

You can make a gumpaste "glue" by pouring equal parts of boiling water over gumpaste and allowing it to melt. Then paint it on with a paintbrush.

I just tried a ballet shoe last week and it was so much easier once I found the glue recipe.

If you do not have a clay gun, what would you suggest to finish off the shoe?

lutie, a clay gun is pretty inexpensive, sold at Michaels, AC Moore etc. Can use the coupon too. Also, cakebaker, thanks so much for this pattern. I used it back in May to make one for my neighbor's daughter's dance recital. It was first try at ballet slippers & the cake was a hit. You are great for sharing this with the CC world!

I am also wondering what you would use to finish off the shoe? My daughter has a recital coming up and the instructor asked me to make the cake, I have never made a ballet slipper but this looks like a wonderful way to make it. I realise the clay guns are simple to buy in the US for most people but I am currently living in Japan and do not have the time to order one of these. Also for the sole of the shoe do you use a sole on the inside as well as the bottom to hide the folding?

I would suggest rolling out a piece of fondant, then cutting a strip out with a pastry wheel. Or, if you have a ribbon cutter (two wheels), that would be even better.
