Yum! Here’s some tasty news. There is a cake maker in London who has taken to crafting shoes and handbags out of chocolate. They go for a pretty penny, ranging from £8.50 – £21 (about $14USD – $34USD). But they are still high in demand. The cake maker, Frances Cooley, supplies her chocolaty creations to 25 local boutiques and delicatessens. Recently, her candy shoes have also been picked up by luxury department store, Liberty (like the Macy’s of London, I think).
They look great but I think if I had a pair, I’d be very conflicted. I’d want to keep them up as a souvenir to show off for as long as I could. On the other hand, I have this kinda, really insatiable sweet tooth. I might be able to keep the temptation at bay for awhile. But that one day when I run out of Rocky Road in the freezer …… I’m just saying, those pumps just might turn into flats after I munch on the heels like candy bars (that is, if there’s any piece of shoe left at all).
