What are you most proud of? He didn't know I was making it, I cut out a gun from paper, put it on petal paste and cut around it, people couldn't believe it was made from icing. the box looked real. the gun looked real, not so much the bullets,(no ones perfect)

Wow! I realize that it's a year and a half since you posted this , but could you explain a bit how you did the wood grain on the box?

the bottom is real cake covered in fondant, but the lid is poly styrene on a cake board and then covered in fondant. I let them dry for at least a day or 2 first, them i streaked them with dark brown first, let it dry then air brushed and all over lighter brown to give a even coat.the mixed 3 shades of browns and hand brushed the whole thing is streaks to give the effect.when it was dry i sprayed it with glaze to give it a lacquered look, the embossed corners where a rubber stamp i cut out by hand and made look like leather.
