White Shoe Box Cake

My cousin's mom has a deep love for shoes, she actually collects them. Last week  her family celebrated her 50 th birthday and this was my cousin's gift for her. The cake was white cake filled with fresh strawberry buttercream. I had a wonderful time making the cake, but I didn't have a great time making the shoe. I was trying to replicate a shoe that my cousin had send me, I have to say that the shoe turns out almost a copy cat of the original. It was a lot of work. I have made shoes before, but this type was my first, and last one maybe? until I take a class where I can learn how to make one the right and easy way.

I hope you are all having a great week so far.  Any plans for the long weekend?

Of course you know every inch of the cake and shoe more than anyone so you would know if something isn't quite perfect, but I'll tell you that your work is awesome! Looks like you taught yourself all you need to know with this one!
