I'm really not a shoe person.
In another life maybe I would be wearing shoes like this, I love the idea of sexy heels and expensive brands but in reality that is just not me.
I hate spending money, especially on shoes and because I walk at a million miles an hour my shoes need to be comfy.
My favourite pair of shoes I owned were some black Converse Chuck Taylor high tops. I remember drawing tiny checkered patterns on the sides (I went through a bit of a punk phase).
Sadly I had to throw them away when they started to resemble a homeless persons shoes rather than the original classic shoe they used to be.
So making Chuck Taylor cakes is something close to my heart, I've made two cakes already and decided to add to my shoe collection with these cute cupcakes.
These cupcakes were for a 21st. The idea was that I was to make six dozen cupcakes that were themed around his favourite shoes.
I decided to go with Nike, Adidas and of course, Converse. I made one dozen each of the shoes and one dozen of each logo.
I wanted to show you that when I make cool stuff like mini shoes to go on top of cupcakes, they don't always come out right the first time round.
Sometimes my fondant creations are too big or the proportions are off or they just look plain retarded. This is my way of saying "if at first you don't succeed try, try again"
See the shoes on the left? They are the prototypes. The ones on the right were after a few goes. Practice makes perfect right!
I wonder what shoe creation I'll be given next. Who knows, maybe another stiletto shoe? Or perhaps some cowboy boots? Yeeharr, bring it on!
