Polkadots Spotlight: Shoes

There are many topics that keep popping up in our shop - from owls and monkeys, Yo Gabba Gabba and Hello Kitty; to Longhorns, lingerie, and Angry Birds etc. Therefore, I thought it would be fun to showcase some treats sharing a particular theme every now then!

Almost all women love shoes, so what could be better than a cake or cookies that look like shoes?!? That way, everyone can enjoy them! First, we have a 6" round blueberry cake with lemon butter cream. It is decorated with fondant hearts, and topped with a handmade sparkly silver pump. The young man who ordered this brought it on a plane to surprise his girlfriend in Wisconsin. Talk about being thoughtful and romantic!

Next is a two-tiered pink and purple filigree cake with a gold bow and matching handmade glittery high heel on top. Our artists spend hours crafting such shoes out of materials like gum paste, fondant, rice krispie treats, and edible ink.

 Shoe cookies are also a popular request at Polkadots. An order called for leopard print dress and shoe cookies that coordinated well with the previous cake. Sometimes people don't want to eat them because they are too pretty, but once they do they say it was well worth it.

We've also made multi-colored heels, sparkly sugar print slingbacks, Cinderella glass slipper cookies, vintage Marie Antoinette shoes, and of course plenty of cowboy and western boots - being that we are in Texas!

As you can see, we are quite experienced in the edible footwear department, so please don't hesitate to call us whenever you are craving some sweet feet treats you can eat!
