Hey CCers!

I have been asked to make a Darts trophy. The client has given me the flexibility to pick the design. I can make it 2D or 3D (3D is preferred by the client though). I would like to make the trophy below into a cake, but this will be a more challenging cake for my skill level (hence turning to my CC friends!). How do you suggest going about this?

My initial thoughts were to make the base out of cake, the dart board out of RKT covered in fondant, and the darts out of gumpaste. I could then use my gold luster dust and vodka to paint it. I am a little worried about the topper. How do I keep those darts on without falling? Should I dowel the whole topper?

Thank you everyone for your help in advance!

toothpicks in darts that then stick into the RKT

dowels in rkt through cake and into base board.

if really after rock solid -- do like you see on cake challenges --- lower cake OVER dowels that have been screwed to base board.
