Karen's Book and Shoe Cake
(Van Buren, Arkansas, USA)
Book and Shoe Cake
For this book and shoe cake, I made the shoe out of gum paste and let dry. I attached the pieces of the shoe with royal icing.
The cake was made in the Wilton book pan.
After the cake was cooked and baked, I iced in buttercream in white.
I combed the edges to make pages and let it dry, then went over the top with a Viva towel. I added a green strip with a round tip and let dry then smoothed that with a Viva towel too.
I made the receipt and credit card out of fondant.The credit card has her name on it and also her birthdate. I also dusted the pages and edges of the pages with dusting powder.
The purple fondant in the center is a bookmark. The words are in buttercream. They say 'Charge it' and 'Happy Birthday to a shoe Goddess'.
