Flip Flop Cake




My friend and I worked together to create a flip flop cake for a friend's birthday.
Our frosting was droopy (I think from the warm weather and humidity) my boarder was not crisp and my flower looked more like a mere dollop of frosting, I rescued the flower by adding some almonds to look like pedals. The straps are fruit roll-ups.
We traced a shoe on paper to use as a template. (marked the top so it wouldn't touch our cake) When we cut out the "shoes" there was a little cake left over. My friend had the great idea to use up the left over cake pieces as "sand" we pulverized the crumbs in a food processor, I think it looked great.
