The hardest part of making this cake I would have to say that it was the tennis shoe, when it comes to modeling shoes size and details are always tricky. If the shoe is too big it will look completely out of proportion on top of the cake, too little and it would look like a key chain!!
I used rice crispy treats for the inside of the tennis shoe, all the outside is covered in gumpaste and I air brushed it to give it a little more life.
For the basketball I used a dummy round covered in orange fondant and a hand cut logo.
