Gun Case Groom’s Cake


This rather interesting groom’s cake request came from a Virginia based bride who was planning a wedding at the Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, NY.  While we never actually met in person, I did receive a number of photographs of the groom’s gun & gun case from the bride to work off of.  While a number of people at the venue thought it was a rather unusual groom’s cake when I was delivering the cake, it made much more sense once I explained that the groom was a military weapon’s specialist!

As you might imagine, I felt just a *little* bit of pressure to get the gun “just right” since that was the highlight of the cake!  While my first attempt was a bit off, I knew I had created a rather good replica the second time around when I posted pictures of the hand sculpted modeling chocolate gun on twitter and I had a few cops message me back with compliments on the gun by model name and a few other cake artists asking where I purchased a gun mold!


This gun case cake was created of one of the most popular groom’s cake combinations: devil’s food cake, filled with peanut butter mousse, frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in a combination of fondant and modeling chocolate.  The gun is created of modeling chocolate and the clip and bullets are a combination of gum paste & fondant.

It was a pleasure to find this review of the cake on WeddingWire from the bride while on vacation a few weeks after the wedding!
