Vintage Sewing Machine Cake & Co-ordinating Cupcakes

I had an order from a lovely lady requiring a "Vintage, Singer Sewing Machine Cake" with co-ordinating cupcakes for her mother's 70th Birthday, as she used to be a machinist.
All these got picked up yesterday morning (Friday)
and travelled all the way from Gosport to Manchester.
I do hope everything got there in one piece,
although we did make sure everything was secure and flat!
When the daughter picked them up she said she was blown away by it
so I hope her mother feels the same way! :o)
The cupcakes are Vanilla and half were decorated to look like Pin Cushions and the other half had buttons and thimbles ontop.
The cake is also Vanilla sponge with buttercream.
The actual sewing machine isn't cake because of the distance it would have to travel we both agreed that polystyrene (A cake dummy) cut to shape and decorated would be the best option, so it stands on a board which can be cut off from the cake.
I loved making this, though a little time consuming in places but so worth it! I just love the look of this!
