One of the great benefits of Nay’s Kitchen is that I am drawing again. I had no idea how much I missed it. A gun cake was requested for a surprise birthday. Although I had never attempted to create one before, I felt I could accept the challenge. This was the design I came up with and it was approved. I created a 10 inch cake. With a knife, I began cutting. I decided to form the trigger and finger grip separate. Looking back, next time I will take the risk and keep it all one piece. Once I had the gun carved out I carefully cut the cake in two layers. I added my icing and then put the cake back together again. Camouflage was requested and so I covered the gun in the marshmallow fondant I had made. I decided to carve out the trigger and finger grip in one piece with the cake I had left over. Covering the trigger and finger grip with fondant was a little time-consuming but I finally got it together and attached it to the gun with icing. The grip on the handle was made with marshmallow fondant and I used the tip of a knife to create the holes. The bullets are fondant as well as the site on top.
Here is the finished cake!
