Manolo Blahnik & Shoebox Cake

My sister-in-law Melissa just loves shoes and she is also a fan of the Sex and the City TV series... so what better gift could I have given her, Manolo Blahnik's {cake version!} The shoe is completely made of fondant icing and took about 4 days to complete, each stage had to be completely dried out before I could put it all together. I was very pleased when it all came together in the finish, the 'shoe box' is a double layer mud cake covered in fondant.

I chose this particular shoe as it appears in one of the episodes of the TV show and I thought Melissa would like that!  At the time of making this the weather was ridiculously hot which made the fondant really sticky and really hard to work with so I was very happy with the end result considering!

My mother-in-law (Kenita) asked if I could make some cupcakes for the surprise party so here they are with my favourite roses on top.  I was dissapointed I didn't get many good photos of everything, too busy rushing around to get there on time without breaking the shoe in transit!  I made some pink frangipani cupcake toppers and the others are stamped fondant to match the board of the shoe cake, these were also chocolate mud cake.

Kenita also asked me to make up some invitations to send out, I thought a little pink shoe with a bit of glitter for extra bling...perfect!
