Hello everybody! I'm making a scarface theme cake for a quiceanera or should I say qinceanero,because it's for a boy,and I was wondering if anybody knows How can I do a gun or a rifle?

I have and idea (sort of) on how to make this cake, I'm thinking money, I'm thinking maybe the picture of Al Pacino, and maybe some cigars,and I'm thinking that I must put a gun or a rifle and maybe a banner with the saying of "say hello to my little friend" as in the movie,

and I'm stuck with the gun/rifle making,can anybody can give a hint on how to do it whether may be of RKT or gumpaste? thank you so much in advance! Regards! icon_smile.gif

I made a fondant handgun before. Cut the shape out of foamcore, several thicknesses, glued them together, then covered with a layer of gumpaste and added details while it was still soft.

I have made a rifle before using gumpaste and fondant mixed. It was for a hunting cake. It worked pretty well.
