This Converse shoe cake was made by using rectangle cakes, iced, and stacked about four or five high. Then you get a nice serrated knife and start carving. I don’t like templates or cut outs; just do it freehand. Start by taking off only a little at a time to get the shape right.(remember- you can always take more off but you cant put it back on)
So you are basically cutting the shoe shape you need. Then I iced it and covered the entire thing in black fondant. Next you need white fondant cut into thin and even strips to make the laces. I went for the old faithful criss cross pattern. Do a wide strip for the rubber outsole, and a fondant piece for the rubber shell cap. And I brushed the toe cap with a little water to give it that chucks sheen. A little black icing to pipe some accents around the side and the All Star on the back.
Then I used a white fondant circle to do the side piece that displays the star, the name, the writing and the logo.
Put it on a nice cake base and watch them enjoy.
