Happy Tuesday, are you having Spring weather were you are? If you do, you are lucky! around here the past few days have been windy and very cold.
I have been living in this country for many years and I can't get used to this weather. My little girl is so looking forward for a warmer weather that she keeps singing "Rain,rain go away and come back another day, the funny thing is that is not even raining is just cold :)
Any signs of Spring where you are?
Well, into this cake.
I made it for a Bridal Shower, the bride is a totally fashionista and she has deep love for designer shoes, her sister provided me with a picture of a Chanel shoe box and the shoe they wanted.
The shoe box cake was very simple to make, the regular standard shoe box made with marble cake and vanilla buttercream. I covered with back fondant, added the "tissue paper", the fake lid ( I used styrofoam) and the box was ready.
The tricky part was the flat Chanel shoe, I promised myself I wasn't going to make any more shoes, they are so time consuming and people sometimes have such a tight budget that they can't afford it. This shoe was totally in the budget ( happy dance) and I had so much fun making it. I was so excited that I even made a tutorial for you, hopefully I will put it up soon.
I made the shoe with a combination of rice crispy treats, modeling chocolate and gumpaste.
For this order I also made cookie favors for the guest, my idea was to imitate the flat Chanel shoe using the flip flop cookie cutter, the results were ok, but not what I was expecting.
I have to say that my client was thrill when she saw the cake and cookies, well that's what it counts right?
Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by.
