This sewing machine cake is in memory of our beautiful mother, who left us early this year. I have been thinking of making this cake for her for a while, but I never got a chance while she was with us. Today I made this machine cake in her memory. She had a hand operated Singer sewing machine with which she created all kinds of garments, cushions, curtains, you name it! She taught me how to sew and to this day I am thankful to her every time I need to alter a piece of clothing.
This cake needed serious support construction; thanks Tom for building it for me! The base cake is orange cake with cannoli amaretto filling. The right column is a plain yellow cake with raspberry filling. The rest of it was sculpted with rice crispy treats, which I made from scratch- including the marshmallows. The cake construction was pretty easy since Tom made the structure for me. The only challenge was the balance wheel which was heavy so it sagged a bit by the time of the party.
Here is a prayer for our beautiful MoYing; may God grant you the best place in the afterlife.
Miss you every day.
