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
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
