I was thinking along the lines of The Great Gatsby...like a tuxedo cake with a bow tie (like you see some dress shirt cakes where it's a rectangle with a tie) with a weapon perhaps to incorporate the murder mystery...

i just can't get away from the idea of the long fringe on a flapper dress even though it's for a guy

 

maybe tinged with a few drops of blood to represent the murder/mystery angle

 

what about a round cake that looks like a table scene

 

the tablecloth has real long fringe--maybe over another (patterned?) tablecloth

 

food on plates

 

a candelabra to add some drama

 

the idea of speakeasy might work in there somehow

 

bootleg booze

 

maybe the tablecloth is pulled off and the table service is all askew

 

and there's a hand clutching the tablecloth

 

where the rest of the 'body' (the murdered guy) is under the table

 

and he just clutched the table cloth on his way down

 

show a french cuff and cuff links and a black suit jacket cuff

 

and maybe a few drops of well placed blood???

 

coupla shoes coming out the other side???
