Sugar Shoes

I've decided to try my hand at making shoes out of gum paste. I've always thought it was a really cute idea and just recently got some good gum paste that I could use to try it out. I left the gum paste white since it was just an experimental shoe and I didn't want to waste time coloring it.

I found a great tutorial on YouTube for a simple shoe to start out with.

I took a few photos along the way:

The shoe sole with a heel

With the lining, complete with "stitching" around the outside

The top of the shoe

The finished shoe! I added a little fondant bow for a finishing touch.

Watch for some fancier/sexier shoes in the future! The process was pretty easy, so I'm excited to make some cuter shoes now that I know the basics.
