This birthday cake was designed for my daughter who had a love of ballet at the time. We had a large crowd, so I needed 2 cakes to feed everyone. I simply made two 9×13 cakes and cut out a freehand slipper shape onto wax paper. I set the wax paper over the cake and cut them with a serrated knife into the shape of the slippers.

First I frosted the “holes” of the shoes white and then finished with the remainder of the shoe in pink frosting. Finally I piped hot pink around the base and holes of the shoes. For a finishing touch, I sprinkled pink glitter sprinkles and topped the shoes with pink satin ribbon ties. The girls were ecstatic with the homemade ballet slippers birthday cake!
