I wanted to try this idea for a while, to use chocolate shoe as part of shoebox cake. Even though there is a LOT of shoebox cakes pictures on the web with gumpaste shoes, and many of them are true works of art, it always seems sad that nobody would eat gumpaste and it would eventually by thrown away. Working with chocolate mold was a lot more gratifying process, after all Belgian dark chocolate would not be discarded after the cake is cut. The shoe was filled with few praline bonbons mixed with fondant roses. All other decorations are made of fondant.

Shoes and chocolate are two most common indulgences that women admit. Combining two of them was double fun to make and (hopefully) to eat. It gave me a chance to try a chocolate mold that was waiting for it’s turn since I ordered it. Dark Belgian chocolate was easy enough to handle and it’s smooth texture created realistic and luxurious look and feel. Hopefully birthday girl who this chocolate shoe was intended for will take a picture of herself biting into the heel.
