Members of cake decorating with Donna recently learned how to create a one of a kind 3D Sneaker Cake that truly looks like the real thing!! The cake was done in a chocolate Brown and a Pink Color which is nothing but cute, the side of the shoes has a Cupcake as the logo and the shoe was named Cupcake Couture which is very fitting as you look as the Sneaker.

Below is a photo of this realistic 3D Sneaker Cake

With the upcoming holiday season alot of people use colored sugar on their Cakes, Cookies and Cupcakes…… there is an easy way to make your own colored Sugar which is a great way to save a little money……

Ingredients ½ cup sugar for each color Food colors (gel or liquid)

Snack sized ziplock bags

 Instructions Put sugar in a  ziplock baggie.

Pick a color from below and add the food colors to sugar in bag.

Push out air and seal the bag.

Squeeze the sugar in bag until it becomes colored.

Once the color is all mixed in I lay out the sugar on a cookie sheet to allow it to dry out, it you have any lumps you can use a sppon to smash the lumps flat, once all dried you can store your sugar in a ziplock baggie or like I do, by re-using a jar that had colored sugar in it!
