This ballet shoes cake was for my daughter’s 5th birthday ( very important). She was starting ballet so I thought this would be a perfect theme. She chose chocolate and strawberry so I made one layer chocolate with fudge filling and the other strawberry with strawberry creme filling.

This was my first endeavor with fondant. I made her ballet slippers on top, pearl borders, ribbon, roses and butterflies. I tinted the fondant pink and used pictures to try and get the ballet shoes the correct shape. I had to so quite a bit in advance to get done in time.

All and all the girls LOVED it, the look and the flavor! And my little girl still talks about that cake.
