First shoe box cake. Shoe made with help from a shoe from Vinnies [St Vincent de Paul charity shop/ Op Shop as they are known in Australia.] The shoe formed both the pattern and platform for the shoe [a size 7 Australian is best]
Model of my beautiful daughter, whose birthday we were celebrating. Figure, beads and shoe made from gum paste. The shoe box was a rich chocolate mud cake with [fondant tissue paper] holding up a polystyrene lid.
