How to make fondant baby shoes

This gorgeous little baby shoes are perfect for baby's first birthday cake or christening cake.
I hope this step by step pictures and shoe template could help you to create a beautiful centre piece.
You need about 300g of modelling paste to make a pair of shoes. Mix 1 teaspoon of Gum powder or CMC with 300g of fondant(sugarpaste) and let it mature for at least 7~8 hours. If your fondant is still too soft to work with, mix in a bit more of Gum powder or CMC or wait until the next day.














If you find it difficult to roll out paste evenly, use a pasta machine instead. You need to roll out no more than 4~5mm of thickness.














 
 
If your paste is too soft leave them to dry a little
 





This one looks quite soft.......
But





Use soft paint brush or your finger to shape them in place
 



 

 
 
 
Sorry~ the text in the picture is in korean. I took these pictures from my korean blog.
Put little water or edible glue along the pink line and the end of the inside strip.









 
 
 





















Mark two little dots with black edible pen or a tiny ball of black fondant for teddy's eyes.

  18. The shoes are great, but when I try to make them the sides keep falling down and deforming the shoes. I even tried with more thick layer, yet still they fall down. Please help!

    1. Hi Jensen
      Sorry for the late reply~
      If your paste is too soft you could add bit more gum powder or leave the shoe piece to dry a little. When the sides fall down use your finger or soft brush to shape them in place.
      I hope it works!
