mafia for a girl - hmm, that's interesting! Did the client have any suggestions? For a guy it would be easier, but a girl? I'm sure others will have cool ideas - I'm drawing a blank though! If you wanted to do a gun it wouldn't be too hard to carve I would think.

thats what i'm thinking. saw some cuppies with pink icing and pink guns on it in the gallery. waiting on the customer to get back with more info ie is she a girly girl or more tomboy girl.

I would imagine you would probably want to use more red and black. Maybe you can go 20's mafia and have tommy guns and fidoras and feathers and maybe throw in some gambling items like cards and chips...?

It must have something to do with that Mafia thing on face book. I don't know a thing about it, but my husband is on it 24\\7. Ask your kids or a facebook person. They will know all about mafia.

There is a facebook and myspace game/application called mafia wars, if you google/picture image "mafia wars" that might give you a some ideas?

Maybe carve out a 1928 Ford Sedan and put some gumpaste tommy guns around it.

Or a mafia guy fedora hat with a tommy gun and cigar by it.

I didn a replica of my dads 1936 Dodge Sedan out of cake for their anniversary one year. They are fairly simple shapes to carve because they were so boxy. Wilton also has a car pan that you can use to modify into a street rod / old sedan... but it's not very big and may not feed all that you need.

I can't find pictures of it to add to my gallery, but when I do I'll add it.
