BALLET SLIPPERS CAKE


I made this cake for a little 13 year old ballerina. Her mom used to do some cake decorating and could really understand and appreciate the time it takes to make a cake like this.
I sculpted the slippers by hand out of fondant. It is really hard to get two sculpted items to look the same. I started the second slipper about 5 times before I could get it to look the same as the first one.
The cake inside was chocolate with vanilla buttercream.
The little girls favorite color was Tiffany blue so I incorporated a little of it in the flowers. I think it turned out very sweet in appearance.

Hey Pam, it's Laura from last night (AKA: Paleo Woman). Wow, Your cake designs belong on the Food Network in the Cake Maker shows! Very creative. Would love to try some of your brittle as I now know your chocolates are special. You mentioned it could be bought from your blog maybe?

What a gorgeous cake! I can only imagine how stressful it must have been to get both shoes to look alike. Great job!

As always, another breathtaking creation. There is something ethereal about your work. It's hard to put into words, but each piece is more beautiful than the last. I regret not being able to study under you.
Oh, and yes, are you marketing your brittle yet??? It's my husband's favorite. Is it really on a blog?
