Hi all. I'm fairly new to cake decorating and I have a challenge ahead of me. I'll be making an open briefcase. Could anyone advice on how to make the opened part (the cover) Here's a sample photo. Openbriefcase.jpeg 64k .jpeg file   Thanks!

gingerbread or cover a foam core board with fondant or modeling chocolate--

 

to keep it standing upright--you can sink the end of it into a slot built into the bottom board--

 

you could also lay the brief case open too--easier on the nerves--but either way--

 

if you do the gingerbread--substitute honey for most or all of the molasses--honey holds against humidity--molasses does not--
