record player

i had the honor of making a birthday cake for a very talented country singershe had recorded this song, only a memory away, many years ago and to this day remained her favorite recording. i wanted to capture her memories of that record in a fun, playful way, and came up with this idea of making a record player. i modeling it after a vintage-looking record player i have, and used homemade fondant and modeling chocolate. she requested carrot cake, which i didn’t realize was a mistake until i started actually constructing the cake–i realized carrot cake is not the best for this purpose and have never agreed to do a carrot cake for someone again (at least not an elaborated constructed cake).
