Cool Shoe Cake for Best Friend’s Birthday

This is a butter pound cake, stacked, and carved in the shape of a converse sneaker (size 10 1/2). Then was frosted in buttercream and covered in fondant, airbrushed in bright yellow with black trim. Holes cut and laces applied.

The cake was sitting on the coffee table when she stopped by for coffee. We sat and chatted for 15 or 20 minutes and she hadn’t said anything about the shoe on the table. I finally told her that the shoe was her BD cake, the look on her face was priceless. She stood there starring at it for at least 5 minutes without saying a word, she couldn’t believe it was a cake. She took pictures on her Iphone and sent them to all her family right then. About an hour after she left, I got a call from her. Her cousin was coming from Virginia to visit on Sat. and she wanted to know how if it would last for 2 days until she got there as she wanted to see it in person.  To tell the truth, I don’t think that she ever ate the cake, the last thing I heard from her cousin was that she took the cake to her office that following monday to show it off.
