Shoes are the number one accessory; women brag about how many pairs of shoes they have in their closet. Mariah Carey had Mario Buatta design an elegant space with gold-leaf and bleached-wood floors for her stilettos. Although my husband has to share his closet with my left over shoes I do not have a special built room just for my shoes, I would not object to one! I admit I adore shoes, wearing them, looking at them, and shopping for them, so it only seems obvious that a shoe would be a popular cake topper. For the past few years fashion cakes have become popular.
When I decided to write a tutorial on fondant/gumpaste shoes I quickly learned there was a very limited amount of information on how to create a realistic platform stiletto high heel shoe. I finally went to talk to a shoe cobbler, who else could explain the structure of a platform high heel.
