Air Jordan Retro 5 Sneaker Cake

After presenting the Air Jordan Sneaker Cake on the blog, another client commissioned this cake… obviously a different model from the other Air Jordan Sneaker. This one presented more challenges as this sneaker is stitched together with the more traditional patches and pieces of a sneaker. For the cool grey sneakers, borders can just be traced out onto the fondant. However, in order to get a realistic look for the Retro 5, we really needed to create each individual piece. Templates created purely from images were used to cut out every piece that was being placed together. The finishing touches also lent it a close-t0-real look. Careful study was made so we could pay attention to every detail.
