Coolest Smoking Gun Cake

I baked this Smoking Gun Cake at the request of a friend who’s spouse teaches firearms classes. They wanted to serve it at the end of the year picnic.

The cake is a vanilla batter and the frosting is butter cream. I printed out pictures of the gun online and used one to outline it on the cake. I used tips 3, 5, 13 and 45 to build up and make the gun, and then used a toothpick for further detailing.

The bullet hole is complete with a frosting bullet in the hole (I used a pencil to make a hole in the cake and the copper tinted frosting inside), and cake shrapnel around the edges.

This is one of the most interesting requests I had ever had for a cake.
