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.

Thirteenth Birthday Cake

For some reason I don’t get to make many “girly” cakes, and really miss it. But here was a lucky break! Red velvet square cake decorated with few necessities of young lady’s life made an exciting challenge. “Coach” handbag was actually a separate little carrot cake. I got to make “zebra” fondant and printed some elements on edible paper to match birthday invitations. Overall a wonderful opportunity to create something both pretty and sophisticated!
