This was a nice change of pace from the traditional pillow cake. The whimsical stripes make it modern and fun. The shoe was challenging, but I think it came out great. It was based on the picture of a real shoe the client sent me.
Different style, same great cake taste!

This is my favorite of Van Gogh's paintings, so it was a thrill to get this cake order. I covered the cake in medium blue fondant, then *sketched* the main elements with a food marker. I used gell food color mixed with a little vodka to *paint* the design. Customer loved it. I was pretty pleased myself.

I love trying new cake decorating techniques. The latest one I tried was stenciling with royal icing. These are two examples. You have to remember to clean the stencil between each section you do. The stencil can get messy which in turn can make the next section you do messy.
