Sexy Stiletto Gum Paste Workshop-- Austin, TX!

I was super excited to be able to teach my 2 day class in Austin.  I had a full house-- 15 students!!  The most I've ever had. :) Above are the 2 shoes I completed while teaching the class, which now live at All in One Bake Shop in Austin.

By the way, I've learned that demoing/ teaching and doing are completely different!  When I'm trying to assemble things so that people can see, or so that I'm in a mirror or in camera, I end up doing things at awkward angles... It's a different art from when I'm sitting in my living room completely focused on the task at hand, and one that I'm still working on mastering!

Anyway, here are the photos from class!

Keeping everybody busy!  

I was very impressed with my students in Austin.  At least one had an enviable shoe collection. :)  I saw some great cakes and some beautiful craftsmanship.  I learned from them too!

I owe so much thanks to the amazing Kyla Meyers for organizing this class.  If you know her, you know she's amazing at what she does and a super nice person.

I hope everyone had a blast and I'm looking forward to teaching again at the end of September at Mother of Cakes Sugar Art Academy in Allentown, PA!


  1. Hi Roxanne, I love your work! I was wondering if you sell you shoe patterns?

  2. Hi! I do sometimes sell my course instructions (with patterns and formers). Email me if you're interested-- roxanne.a.moore at
