Tuesday Toppers: Sewing Machine Cupcake

singercupcake12

This week i'm going to take a break from my Wallace and Gromit series for two reasons. 1. Its been hotter than all get out here so I haven't really been in the mood to work with fondant , and 2. 100% humidity and fondant don't mix very well, lol. So i'm pulling out a cupcake I made a few months ago. I hadn't intended on making this one into a tuesday topper but i've had so many requests for it that I changed my mind :D. I think i've figured out a pretty simple way to make it and here's what you will need to make one:

singer13

-Fondant smoother
-knife
-Fine tipped paintbrush
-Gold luster dust
-Small amount of vodka or alcohol based extract
-I'm not sure why I have the ball tool in the picture because it's not needed, lol.

singer12

-Roll one of the balls into a log.

singer11

-Flatten with fondant smoother.

siner10.5

-Cut edges off to form a rectangle.

singer10

-take the other ball and roll into a longer log tapering a bit at one end. Take fondant smoother and just slightly flatten one side, turn and do the same on the other side. (your trying to make it into a box shape.)

singer9

-Form into an upside down U.

singer8

-On the thicker side, pinch with finger and thumb up towards the top.

singer7

-Using fingers again pinch both top corners to make them more defined.

singer6


singer5

-For the side wheel, take some scraps from the base and make two balls, one larger than the other. Flatten with fondant smoother.

singer4

- and with a touch of water attach to each other

singer2

-Using some more scraps make a tiny rope and cut two small pegs.

singer1

-With some gold luster dust mixed with a very small amount of alcohol, paint some embellishments on the top section and on the edge of the wheel. Let all of the pieces dry over night.

-After you've let them dry overnight, attach the top to the base with water or gum paste glue. Add spindles and wheel, and if you want, a thin square of fondant for the fabric.

Happy Tuesday :D
