The shoes were made from melted chocolate in molds and disco dust which I love but it's not truly food safe. Interesting but cake vendors sell it!
The cake was handpainted with a combination of icing colors and pearl dust. I'm definitely not a painter, and I really need to get with my art teacher friend for some classes. The poppies were made out of royal icing and airbrushed with gold and red pearl dust. I love poppies! I remember picking them during my trip to Morocco, so I had to get them in this cake somewhere. I put little fondant circles on the backs of some of them so they would stand out.
