A variation of lemon & vanilla sponge and just plain vanilla sponge, shaped by hand carving into a shoe-shape (granted it looks more like a snow boot or Ugg than it does a Dr Marten!) Covered in lemon buttercream throughout the layers and covered to help the icing to stick. I used a layer of white royal icing, as I can not get hold of modelling chocolate that would help it keep its structural integrity, and then smoothed out the lumps and bumps ready for the final layer of purple royal icing. Red writing piped icing for the stitching, and strawberry laces for the shoe laces. All details have been mostly added with piping. Basically I have given my sister diabetes for her 15th birthday.
