Here's a picture of the shoes as they were drying, Mel painted them with black food colouring and a little vodka to give them the patent leather look. All details were made with fondant other than the shoes, the roses and the straps on the purse which were made with gum paste. And if you look closely at the shoe box, the lid is trimmed with white edible pearls.
HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY TINA! WE WISH YOU MANY MORE!
