Hi everyone - this is my first post - yay!
I am doing a record player for a DJ-ing friend next week and was wondering if anyone had any clues on how to do the arm?

Thanks HEAPS! thumbs_up.gif

Well.... "Happy 1st Post" to you!! icon_lol.gif

I searched some previous forums and this is what I found...

Also, if you look under the 'search' tab and type in record player, there are quite a few cakes previously posted that you may find inspiration.

Good Luck!!

I recently made one for a friend (look at my Photos) and I used the florist wire, about three or four entwined with florist tape, the cover it with gumpaste. The head with the needle I made separately and attached later. It's best to do this a few days ahead, plus keep an extra one just incase anything happens.
Happy baking & cheers!

Made this one a couple of months back. Just made the arm out of gumpaste, a couple of gumpaste supports for underneath and glued the parts together on the cake. I did premake small holes for toothpicks, so that I could fit them together on the cake.

As for the record, I used a cutting board with tight spirals and just rolled the fondant out on it and cut it out with the lid of a cooking pot, worked beautifully and really looked like a record

I made one 3 months after just starting to make cakes. It is kinda lop sided but the birthday boy loved it. I used a bendable straw that I covered in fondant. It is in my photos.
