Baby Converse Cake

We're in the middle of baby shower week!  Who can resist tiny little shoes - they're simply adorable!  Yesterday I showed you a baby bootie cake that was all pink and girly - but it doesn't work so well for a boy.  These converse shoes, on the other hand, are perfect for a little boy baby shower.  

The shoes are made of gumpaste and the other decorations are homemade marshmallow fondant on buttercream icing.  The template for the shoes is shown below.   You can find the video tutorial to make the shoes here.  (The plastic wrap inside the shoe is there for support during drying - it was removed before the party.)


  1. Fabulous! Thanks for creating a template!

  2. I can't believe all the cuteness you were up to while I was away! This is truly amazing and the booties too! And the cake pops! Let's have a baby!

  4. ift it is made with gumpaste it becomes very hard or does it stay soft?

    1. The gum paste becomes very hard and you would probably not want to eat it, although it is edible. I think that they would keep a very long time and could even be kept as a keepsake.
