Some of you may know I’ve been taking classes with Bonnie Gordon. Saturday I took another class "The Art of Sculpted Cakes" where I chose to sculpt a Nike running shoe.
I showed up for my class with a 9” by 3 1/2 “ square filled cake and a few ideas of what to make. I decided on a running shoe since my cake wasn’t quite big enough for a large purse and I thought a shoe would be a somewhat easy but challenging first project.
My class introduced me to some other great aspiring and practicing cake decorators. I met Carolyn who also has a blog It’s a sweet thing. She created a fabulous hamburger cake.
Some other cakes included a bulldog (I wasn’t quite that brave) a Chanel purse, a piggy bank and a high heel shoe.
After spending about 8 hours carving, covering, and decorating my shoe I was pretty happy with the result.
My next cake, the statue of David... kidding.
