4 boxed cakes, 3 cans of Gum paste 1 box of rice crispy treats, Butter cream icing and Canoli filling.
What was your inspiration?
I was asked by my friend to make a "Cassatta Cake" for her husbands surprise 40th, and his favorite/prize possession is this gun which was owned by his grandfather, for whom he is named after. he keeps it in a flet lined box so the cake was made to represent that.
What are you most proud of?
I was able to work with gum paste and turn it into wood using cocoa powder and vodka.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take your time and practice with the gum paste. Once you get it down to where you feel comfortable, you'll find you use it on everything!! It's great for making flowers too!
