Oh. i'm doing this same project, but I'm not sure what to do on step 5, when i'm dealing with the sleeves. the picture is kinda complicated  Cry

It's more simple than it looks.  Take the two lower edges, and match the seams together, right sides together, so that basically the 2 openings are facing each other.  Once it's stitched between the dots, and turned right side out, it creates a pocket out of the sleeve.   

I don't even have it at home with me right now, a friend borrowed it, otherwise I would take some pictures :\

Good luck Smiley

I echo all the previous comments, but a different small detail caught my eye: "RUM RICE CEREAL TREATS" ?!?!  Shocked Oooh, yum...pardon my drooling...Is it just like rice krispy treats with rum added to the butter and marshmallows during the cooking?

Yes!  Once the butter and marshmallows were melted down, I added in the rum, to preserve some of the alcohol content.

Thanks Smiley

The wheel was tricky!  It was the first part I made, so it had enough drying time

How did you come up with the idea???

It's what I was asked to make, I just chose to make it 3D Smiley

Stunning!  Sounds absolutely amazing but I have to ask...How long did that take you?

About 5 hours to assemble and decorate (not counting chilling time).

And I'm also curious to how long you've worked on it and how do you keep the head, the floating thing, from falling down? It stays up without a foot or something beneath it??

The "needle" bit is actually a dowel through the cake, with the presser foot attached at the bottom, and there's a second dowel through the other side (wheel side) all the way to the base of the cake

I haven't taken a photo of it since it fully healed, but here it is just after he finished

I got a tattoo from a friend of a friend in April, and instead of cash, I paid him in cake.  I made this for his girlfriend's birthday on May 20th Smiley

Vanilla buttermilk cake soaked with buttery rum, and layered with caramel buttercream and dulce de leche caramel.  The top of the machine is made of rum rice cereal treats.  It is hand painted with 24carat edible gold, and edible silver.  I made the wheel on the back out of gum paste, painted it black and brushed it with a little bit of silver.





And here are some close-ups of the gold:




Thanks for looking  Cool

Awesome!  I love hand made soaps; I started using them about 6 months ago, and noticed a big change in my skin through the cold winter.

I have considered getting into soap making, but the bf thinks I already take up too much space with crafty things haha

Keep up the good work Smiley
