I have a customer who would like to order a cake that is a lifesize-ish replica of a placenta. Yes, you read that right. Veiny, red, mucousy placenta. This client works in the medical field and often handles placentas, hence the wacky cake idea.
I have only found a few examples of a cake like this online, so I am turning to trusty CC'ers for answers.
Specifically- how do I cover the cake in a glazed finish, so that it is super shiny and mucousy looking? Also, what should I use for "veins"?
Any help would be sincerely appreciated. My client is hoping for my price quote by tomorrow, and I am trying to get an idea of the work that this will involve.
Thanks in advance!!
