Guess who watched three different kinds of Christmas Carol movies? I happened to have a bit of inspiration and drew some of my oc's as characters in the story. Tau in both outfits of Mr. Scrooge, 3-5 as Jacob Marley, Pi as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Gamma as Christmas Present with Algiz under him to make him taller than he really is, and quiet Ayo as Christmas future.
Well, its that time of year! Thought I would make something quick just to let you all know I'm grateful for the watches, comments and friends I have made here. You are all great and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season. <3
here is how I made the Sewing Machine. there are few steps I didn't make pictures of so: - between 1 and 2 I wrapped whole structure in cling film so that the cake wouldn't have direct contact with it - no.3 - on this picture you can see a bit of real Singer Sewing Machine I found in my family house - it was a big help to get the proportions right! - no.5 - it took forever to get it covered smoothly! I used fondant/modeling chocolate mixture but I would say modeling chocolate made around 75-80% of it. that's how I managed to make it almost seamless - no.6 - the piece of wood sticking out from the back was half of support I used for the big wheel. it took me 3 attempts to get it right - I tried to make it in gingerbread, but it didn't hold the shape and looked sloppy. then in Royal Icing, but even after 2 days it still wasn't dry enough. so finally I made it from the same fondant/chocolate mix I used for covering the cake, with a long skewer going inside the cake - between 6 and 7 is missing almost whole day of decorating. not only golden swirls but also silver details, wood effect on a cake board, fabric, buttons and all that jazz in the end it took 3 days + time I used making the structure. the board was so big it didn't fit inside my fridge, luckily it was in the middle of mild winter so during the nights I kept it on a balcony in a big box when I decided to make this cake I knew it was going to be epic - I was just expecting it to be an epic fail but in the end even self-critical me was happy with how it turned out!
