 SHOT GUN SHELLS, SHELL BOX AND TURKEY FEATHERS

Earlene Moore developed this idea. 
I printed the shot gun shell boxes for her on edible frosting sheets. (I no longer can print, sorry)
If you want explicit instructions for doing the shells etc, you can order them from her website here:

Instructions for coloring feathers
Looks like she covered the side of top cake and the bottom cake using ganache icing.
Feather patterns on paper that you can print on large frosting sheets using edible ink in a large format printer.

EARLENE'S CAKE AT ICES
If I remember, wafer paper was used for a lot of the items shown above. Chocolate molds were used for some and the pieces are made of Merckens coating chocolate, approp. colored choc.
Golf ball mold #90-6009, Monarch or Blue Butterflies (I print these), Coins mold #90-13413, Pliers mold #90-9697 (under TOOLS), Feathering on lures is slivered/tinted wafer paper she colors using Coloring Pens - Coloring Dusts can be used for painting chocolate pieces. Use Gold Highlighter Dust for shell

SHELL INSTRUCTIONS
Posted by DeniseNH on September 08, 2005
(Click any link to order products)
Acquire one shell then order Silicone Putty from Dolores. Make the chocolate mold yourself. Takes 30 seconds to mix the two ingredients together and 15 minutes for the shell (stuck into the silicone putty) to cure enough to use it as a chocolate mold - just mold two halves together and you have your edible shells. They say you can make molds out of children's clay - have done that before but it leaves the outside of the chocolate dull looking and the mold is ruined when you take out the chocolate so you have to remake the mold each time. Not that I've ever seen a shiny shotgun shell before. Whatever you do - don't use play dough. Too soft to mold. Best of luck.
*Use Gold Highlighter Dust for shell end. Red chocolate for the shell part.
ORDER THE EDIBLE-PRINTED BOX FOR THE SHELLS
Make the small square cake then cover it with your cut-out box that I print.
I have no instructions whatsoever. Get them from Earlene.

Sorry, I can no longer print these for you. I do not have a wide printer at this time.
These look VERY real but are icing!
I believe Earlene made a small cake (probably smaller than you may think) then she iced it, then applied small amount of piping gel so the edible paper would adhere. Just guessing.
