Hiya All,

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! icon_smile.gif

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.
