Amish quilting cake

Amish quilting cake made for a special lady's 50th
The Amish ladies symbolise her strong faith in God and love of quilting.
The quilt on the table is a replica of a favourite quilt the birthday girl has hanging in her home.
Inside is dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache
Amish ladies close-ups
When I was setting up the cake, someone commented: "Oh look! A basket of fat quarters!"
I'm not a quilter so was pleased to hear that my bundles of material actually had a name!
Cotton reels and pin cushion
The accompanying vanilla cupcakes for non-chocolate eaters
These buttons were inspired by Donna Hay button toppers I've seen around

This cake took 5 days (approx 33 hours) to complete.
