4. Re-adjust the shape making sure it is straight and smooth. There will be some condensation which will dry in a few minutes. Before you leave the shoe to dry hard, it is a good idea to have a skewer inserted into the heel to help balance the shoe on the former as well as the final cake, later.
5. Leave the shoe to dry for at least a couple hours or overnight. I usually leave it for at least two days. (read tips above) Once dry, roll some thin black paste and cut the inner lining of the heel as well as the heel tip, as shown.
7. I find the best way to cut these exactly the same is to place the violet paste on the black paste. Then place the template on the paste and cut out cleanly with an Xact-o knife. Once you cut the sole, run your finger around the edges to remove any sharp corners. Using gum glue, attach the sole to the heel. Make sure the edges of your sole sit snugly on the heel. You should not see the heels edges. Let dry an hour or so before you roll some ivory paste for the inner sole.

Hello, Ann . Your tutorial is excellent even for a stupid old french guy .. ? I bought your templates and my first shoe was just perfect ( a little bit too hard because of the typos I add to the fondant ) but my second one broke into several pieces . My question : did you use fondant or gum paste for your gorgeous shoe ? 2b1af7f3a8
