For this cake I was asked to do a 6" 2 layer vanilla with a dozen cupcakes. of course it had to be purple, dark purple. I wasn't messing with trying to dye the fondant and instead bought it predyed. Makes life so much easier.
I love doing these shoes on cakes. They are so much fun. I surprise myself sometimes on how well these turned out. Ha!
For the cupcakes I cut out 2 1/2 inch circles and then added a black fondant bow on top. I had a template for the bows to make sure that they were all the same size and uniform.
This really wasn't for Day's 40th birthday, it was actually her 49th. No one ever said we couldn't repeat a birthday!
