What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that it was dead on in replication.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time. The details are what make this cake worth it.

I'm unsure what discasting means, but I assume you mean disgusting. It is not disgusting as my nephew is serving this country as a grown man and has every right to bear arms as per the constitution of the United States of America. I am very proud of him for what he does. Your comment was completely uncalled for and highly unappreciated. Hope you have a nice day trying to make others feel bad for something they worked very hard to accomplish.

Hey There! Just wanted to say that your artistry was incredible- it looks like a real firearm! We all have different tastes, so I assume that you chose a design that your nephew would find pleasing. Hope he enjoyed it! Keep up the great work - you have a real gift for creating realistic, edible objects!

My husband and I love it!! Would be a great groom's cake. Being a law abiding gun owner I appreciate the realistic quality of it. And as for Discating, we should keep young adults away from cake, more for us crazy gun toting adults!
