The story goes that every year she gets her son a new pair of Nike shoes, this year she wanted to get him something different for his birthday but she still wanted him to get his Nike shoes, thus the Nike shoe cake idea!
It wasn't exactly the easiest cake in the world to make, I'd never made a 3D shoe cake before and the shoe couldn't be too small or they wouldn't have much cake to eat!

|Just Do It!|
I didn't take many photos along the way (sorry) but I baked two square cakes and one loaf tin cake using 2 x my chocolate cake recipe then basically stacked them, with icing in between layers and hacked away at it with various knives from my kitchen. Then I covered the cake in black fondant and stuck on the other fondant colours, layer by layer. After all the fondant was in the right places I drew and indented my cake to give it all the details.

I hope you like it, I'm pretty proud of it myself!
