A high heel-shaped shoe cake is a good option when you are baking a cake for someone who enjoys fashion and shopping. Making a cake shaped like a high-heeled shoe might seem daunting, but it is something that even a novice baker can create. Just cut the high-heeled shoe out of a larger cake and then decorate it so that it looks like a shoe that the person wears often.
Place your rectangular cake on a clean, flat surface.
Trace the design of a high-heeled shoe onto the cake using a toothpick. A pump is likely the easiest style of high heels to create. Look at a picture of a shoe when you are doing this. Continue creating your shoe design until you are happy with it.
Use a serrated knife to cut your high-heeled shoe out of the cake. Discard the excess cake. Make sure that you clear away the excess cake so that you have straight sides.
Place your high heel-shaped cake onto the centre of a cake platter.
Frost the cake using icing in a colour of your choice. Frost the heel in a different colour or frost the entire cake in one hue.
Place embellishments onto the cake to decorate it. For example, sprinkle coloured sanding sugar onto the cake so that it looks like the shoe is sparkling. Add candies to the shoe to create a pattern or a design.
