Sometimes, you just have to come back to basics, or in my case, to gum paste stilettos.
I really enjoyed making this teal and zebra version of my signature gum paste stiletto. I particularly liked the liner and label, which I made super-blingy.
This stiletto was made for a birthday celebration, and had an accompanying chocolate cake that I also covered in a zebra stripe pattern.
The shoe will ultimately be a topper, but it was packaged separately for easier travel.
For the stiletto, I painted the zebra stripes onto white gum paste using black piping gel diluted with just a little vodka. For the cake, I hand cut the zebra stripes from fondant that I rolled out thin using the pasta machine.
Such a fun shoe/ cake combination!
I made the silver studs using a homemade silicon mold that I created using a rhinestone from the scrapbooking aisle.
Hope you have a fantastic week! :)
