Ladies shoes (gumpaste)

Decorating cakes with shoes are nothing new.. I’ve seen the shoe cutters being sold for a few years now.  But somehow I don’t really the idea of putting shoe on your cake, maybe it’s the way I was brought up.  In real life, shoes should be kept away from food..  Nevertheless, I decided to put away those thoughts and bought myself a shoe cutter from Jem Cutters.   And here are the results :

What do you think ? The green one was not really dried and looks a bit distorted :P .   Let me show you how the cutter and mold looks like.  There are a few brands in the market, and each look different. The Jem Cutters I’ve used is this one.

It comes in several parts – the heel mold, sole cutter and the upper shoe parts.  And two small foams are also given for support.   Making the ladies shoe is not that difficult actually. Just cut and join the parts together.

The only drawback is you only have two of those small styrofoam for support.  So you have to wait for one shoe to dry before proceeding to make the other.  A slow process if you are planning to make more than one pair.  You could try to use cotton balls or other suitable things to hold the gumpaste parts while they are drying.  My recommendation is to make these shoes a few days ahead and not in our rainy days, you know the gumpaste might take a while to dry.   All in all,  I had a fun day making these ladies shoes and probably will add them as accessories to my cakes in the future.  Bye now :) .

MamaFaMi says:

Very true la Min.. kenkadang rasa macam bersalah je nak letak kasut atas kek kan? Hehehe.. Tapi nowadays dah moden, bukan kata kasut je, segala benda pun orang dah jadikan kek.

Masa blog Min keluar, mama ingatkan tu gambar kasut untuk dipakai. Kotlah Min nak tayang kasut baru ke… rupa-rupanya gumpaste shoes. Wow they look real la Min. Cantik sekali….

Hi Pauline, thanks for buying my book and also stopping by ya :)

Yasmin, Beautiful creations! Thanks for sharing. I always wondered how gumpaste shoes were made. I also bought your book “Kraf Gula” which gave me an idea how to make gumpaste figurines. So, thanks again!
