When Is a Shoe Not a Shoe? When It’s a Cake, Naturally.

I’ve heard the old expression “I’ll eat my hat” when betting on something improbable. But I’ve never heard anyone say, “I’ll eat my shoe.” But I’d definitely eat my shoe if it were actually a delicious cake. Natalie of Sideserf Cake Studio has made some pretty epic cakes in her time, from hyperrealistic foods to nightmarishly creepy monsters. Now, she’s made a cake that looks exactly like an adidas ZX 2K Boost sneaker.

Like most of her cakes, she made the structure from layers of cake and buttercream, then sculpted its exterior and sole from modeling chocolate. We love how she even accurately sculpted the tread pattern even though it’s mostly hidden underneath the cake. She incorporated every little detail, from the adidas logos and triple-stripe pattern to the textures on its upper to the laces and loops made from extruded modeling chocolate.

The video below shows off the full cake making process. While watching, I was actually ready to eat the shoe when it was just cake and buttercream.

Here’s a picture of the original shoe for comparison. Seriously, this cake is so accurate that if she wasn’t careful, she might try and put her foot into her dessert.
