My mom and I made this Sewing Machine Cake as a retirement cake for someone who loves to quilt and sew. The machine itself is sculpted from krispy treats, covered in a layer of almond bark and then covered again in chocolate marshmallow fondant. I baked an 11×15 cake twice and stacked together with icing in between. All of the accessories were hand sculpted from gumpaste.

I painted the blades of the scissors and seam ripper and the thimble with silver pearl dust mixed with a drop or two of clear vanilla. The machine was hand painted with the word “SINGER” and a pretty curly que design with gold pearl dust mixed with clear vanilla. I used an edible food marker and wrote on the quilt with a stitched type writing “Happy Retirement Joyce, Sew Long!”
