Skeet / Trap Shooting

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am making some cupcakes this weekend for our "club shoot" at the gun club we belong to. Everyone will be competing in Skeet and / or Trap shooting. I know I can put a shotgun shell on top of a cupcake but I am having trouble figuring out how to make a broken clay. If anyone out there knows anything about either one of these sports I could really use some help. I have already checked the galleries and could not find anything. icon_cry.gif
TIA

What about just snipping off a piece of a white chocolate wilton melts? Did you understand what I meant cause I am not sure if I explained it right? Unless you wanted it bigger then I would do a vanilla wafer covered in white chocolate. Good luck on your idea! very interesting icon_rolleyes.gif

What a cool thought a vanilla wafer covered in orange candy melts (the clay pidgeons are orange) and then somehow just break a piece off of it. Thanks Stephanie! I will do that for part of them for sure. Others I am going to make a shotgun shell for and I am still open for other ideas.

I have a broken clay target sitting on my comuter here at work. (I know, I heard it all, I am the VERY liberal artist who shoots targets. Please no jokes cuz I drink scotch also. Hardy har-har icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif )

My targets are orange and about the size of a teacup saucer. I would sculpt a target out of gumpaste and "pepper" it with "BB shot" holes to make it feel as if it were a target. I think if it was broken up like the one my computer it might not read the same way. Then you might want to do a square cake and make a "paper" shooting target on top to balance out the shell and clay target. icon_wink.gif

Good luck and post your pix.
