Even though I’ve grew up in a family of hunters and gun enthusiasts, I have to tell you I don’t know much about them when it comes to details – especially pistols.
I did enjoy hunting myself when I was younger (with a shotgun or rifle), but I haven’t been in years…. unless you count when I shot that snake out of a tree last year. So I guess I can handle a gun if I have to…. I just don’t do it all that often anymore.
Anywho – when asked to make a gun in the shape of a Glock 9mm gun… I had to do a quick search to see exactly what it looked like. I mean, I knew it was a pistol and I thought it was one of those sleek newer styled guns (vs. a revolver), but that’s about it.
My husband, Daddy and brothers are all exasperated right now (or they would be if they read my blog 😉 ). Oh well…
So this is it – my Glock cake. I can’t even remember many details or the size of it except it was big. And red velvet on the inside and I covered and decorated it with Satin Ice Black fondant. I did take a picture for reference… that’s a full-size un-sharpened pencil next to it. Bigger than you thought, huh?
There is one more thing I can tell you. One of my kids – I think the oldest one – dropped a book on the barrel of the gun just before I was ready to box it up. He sort of messed up the end…
I was pretty upset, but there was no time to do any kind of serious repair or start over, so I just smooshed around and reshaped it as best I could. The ding on the top-side was the worst of it, but still… I was not a happy lady!
Thank goodness, my client was still thrilled with the cake and she told me later than her police officer husband also loved it! At the end of the night, it was all eaten and nobody cared all that much that it wasn’t perfect. Gotta love having clients who are laid back and understanding!
And that’s that.
Do you have any questions about this cake? Leave me a comment and I’ll answer and help out if I can!
