A Walk on the Wild Side-- Gum Paste Stiletto Cake

So you should recognize the gum paste stiletto from my post earlier this month. :)

I had to strike a compromise, because while I was dying to use it on a cake, I didn't want to do anything to damage it since I'll be teaching a class on making that particular stiletto along with another one.  So I didn't want to destroy my prototype.

So I made a cake that I could sit it on to take some pictures, and then carefully removed it. :)

The cake was covered in ivory fondant and then textured and hand dusted and painted to reflect the cheetah pattern on the stiletto.  I finished it with some black fondant ribbons and a black magic gum paste rose.
