I have been blessed with so many of my readers enjoying my Purple Passion Fondant High Heel Shoe tutorial and requesting if I would create a video. I have put this video tutorial together, with the help of both Sydney and D.F. With Halloween upon us I thought it would be fun to to create a Halloween platform stiletto, the toe piece is a bat and the heel has a bat on the back too. The fondant heel can be created with any of my  toe...

Styrofoam or cake

  • Styrofoam heat tool or sharp blade
  • Tissue blade
  • X-acto knife
  • Wood skewers, two
  • High heel mould
  • Styrofoam drying rack
  • Decorative molds
  • Artist brushes
  • Needle tool
  • Fondant smoother
  • Fondant rolling pin
  • Sanding block
  • Facial mask
  • Ribbon cutter
  • Mini pizza wheel,Nycake
  • Hot glue gun
  • Cardboard
  • Pasta machine, optional
  • Shoe templates
  • Strathmore  Artist paper
  • Doll making foam, or pillow foam



  • 1-White cake recipe, for the shoe box
  • Fondant, black, red, and ivory..or your choice, fondarific
  • Black petal dust
  • Everclear
  • Tylose powder
  • Edible glue
  • Crisco

I used red colored fondant rather than coloring the fondant myself; to create the vibrant red I wanted for the platform stiletto  I would have had to use a plethora of food paste and my fondant would be too sticky and floppy to use.

Also when I give the direction for the ivory piece that lays upon the front of the heel I give the measurements in millimeter, the measurement should be in centimeters.

 The video tutorial is broken into three sections:

The heel, the sole, and the constructions. I have gone to great length to be as informative as possible, but if you have any question please leave me comment, so  I maybe able to help!

The best thing about cake decorating is you can always create another designer!

Awesome shoe Bobbie!  Wish you had posted this about 3 weeks ago - I'm quite sure I would have done much better first time around with my Louboutin shoe!
