So I volunteered to do a cake for our next staff meeting - on the side of my career I work for a place that sells what I would consider high quality leather garments and apparel. If anyone has any suggestions and/or pictures of gum paste figurines maybe wearing a leather jacket that they could share I would be so pleased. I am in need of some inspiration.
Additionally, I'm looking for suggestions on two other things. First of all, where in Canada can I find "Tap-Its"? Does Michael's carry it? Also, the cake is for about 25 people - and currently I have a 6" round, 8" round, 10" round, and 2 square 8"s in my collection. What would be your suggestion on what to make?
As always, thanks gurus!
Is this tooled leather, or plain? I've seen some gorgeous embossed leather coats over the years, so I was thinking a leather coat, some sections embossed, some not, offsetting each other, kinda like the lapels on a tuxedo. You could use an embossing rolling pin for the texture, then just piece the fondant sheets accordingly.
