Shoe Box Cake

This cake was for a retirement party. The honoree is a shoe lover, she even has a big closet just for her shoes. The lid is fake. I used Styrofoam covered with fondant. The tissue paper is made out of 50% gumpaste and 50% fondant. I attached with royal icing.
Shoe is made out of gumpaste, I hand painted the zebra print using one of my shoes as an inspiration( yes, I have zebra print high heels shoes, I haven't used them since I had the baby, but I refuse to get rid of them thinking one day I will use them.)

Hi Kathia! How much would you charge this cake? I may refer a client to you since I MAY BE OUT OF TOWN and can't do her cake...(for 6/20). She wants to know average price. Thanks!

Oh just came across this from a link to your latest shoes. They look like some old designer shoes I have that cost me hundreds of dollars but I haven't worn since I had the baby either LOL
