Designer shoe disaster

This cake was for a lovely lady that has just got a job in Australia as a fashion buyer, her mum and dad are having a send off party for her and ordered it as a surprise.  The theme was designer fashion, Australia and work shoes.  It was all boxed up and ready to deliver this morning.  But after coming home past midnight last night, I thought I would just check on the cake and the shoes had collapsed.  Arghh!  Up at 6 a.m. this morning making another pair (smaller this time) and delivered the cake to a very happy customer, new shoes still intact.  Phew, near disaster missed!!

Here is the first pair (broken) and the finished cake.
