Well it’s final four weekend and my cake for the week was an AIR Jordan 3 Retro shoe sitting on it’s box.  This was the first time I’ve made a shoe and to date definitely one of my coolest cakes.  I had so much fun working on it and wish I had more time to add even more detail and measure instead of eyeball.  I was scared that [...]
