Cake Tools: Lizard Modern Pump and Shoebox

Although I am not a fashionista myself, I’ve always been drawn to the beautiful exotic textures of animal skins, especially in all the colors they can be found. Unlike other textures where with a ton of perseverance you can use your hands to make it look like an actual skin- lizard would be impossible to emulate correctly without the help of an impression mat. This enclosed toe shoe was quite a challenge to make but I’m happy to show you my version in my second shoe class with Craftsy, Runway Ready Shoes. I also show in my first book, The Confetti Cakes Cookbook how to make a realistic looking shoe box, completely made from cake.
