Platform Pump Fondant/Gumpaste Shoe

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a template or even advise on how I can make a fondant high heel pump. I'm seeing lots of great looking shoes with straps or slings, but nothing with a full pump. Help please? I need to practice this weekend for a cake in two weeks. I'd like it to be realistic in size. It's going on the top of a two tiered cake for a bridal shower. Top cake will be 6" diameter round.

 

Thank you!

sandie i use a real shoe i bought a cheap pair from a shoe shop and took it apart makes a great drying former rack too. you can either make a mold of the heel from silicone plastique 

 

this is the tutorial i followed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhuDKQAaHTM

 

i like my shoes to come in pairs and be life size - although for cakes a size uk4 looks right.
