totally awesome! I couldn't eat that either, it's just to pretty!
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?? (oh man, I'm terrible at trying to explain things where I don't know the word for ^^')

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

Sounds so yummy, but I couldn't bear top be the one to take a bite of it, let alone cut into it.  Love all the gold, I've never seen edible... gold.

That is amazing!  It looks so authentic.  Incidentially, I have a treadle singer sewing machine that looks like your cake.  I agree, I would never want to cut into that cake, I'd have to preserve it somehow!  How did you come up with the idea???
