Hiya Everyone :-)
Just sharing one of my latest cakes.
This singer sewing machine cake has to be my first structually challenging cake.
I made the part that goes across with rice krispie treats and thank you Debbie Brown for that fantastic recipe. I had never made rice krispie treats before but they were just a dream to work with. I read a few tips to crush the rice bubbles before adding the melted mashmellow mix to get a smoother and more compounded mix. Or you could put them in food processor for a bit I suppose. Then I carved the shape and found that a potato peeler worked a treat to get off the excess and keep the surface really smooth. I barely needed any ganache at all to fill in any gaps .
The rest of the sewing machine is cake and I just finished it off with a few bit and bobs to bring the whole sewing scene together.
Oh and I forgot to take a photo of the cake once the sewing machines handle was put on. My first one broke so I didn’t put my spare on until I got to the venue and unfortunately forgot to take my camera with me. You can just pretend the handle is there haha
Thanks for looking xx
