All Sewn Up

Sewing Machine Cake

My grandmother had a sewing machine just like this one. From the needle and thread to the folded fabric and the dresser it sits upon, it is incredibly realistic and entirely edible. Yum! Maybe I’ll take up sewing after all.

There are so many talented people designing cakes to wow an audience. It seems there is nothing they can’t do. I hope you have been inspired by these photos and will give cake decorating a try. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Until next time…

Thanks for Reading & Happy Crafting!

  6. One day out of the blue I realized I didn’t answer your question about the sewing machine cake’s stability. Many pros use white PVC pipes to create structural support. A short vertical pipe and a long horizontal one are bolted together and then secured to a plywood base. Rice Krispie treats are molded over the pipes to create the sewing machine and then they are covered with fondant and the details are added. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks!
