I need help to simplify something I have seen that I am not confident enough to attempt a complicated version of. I can't afford to spend a fortune on them but thought a simpler version may be possible if I did two smallish square cakes with a 'record on each, an arm to play the record and a slider. & a very simple mixer with a couple of sliders & knobs on it

So, I have a couple of questions . . . any idea how I could ,make the record turn on the turntable? My BIL is hoping I can do this & I can definately do a very much simpler version if I can manage this!

Would you use straws or icing to make the 'arm' that plays the record?

How would I be best making the silver parts? Edble paint or lustre dust? I've been searching but am struggling a bit deciding which would be better to use, since as far as I can see, it is possible to paint with the lustre dusts & they are slightly cheaper than edible paint

Oh, and, any ideas what I could make a longish oblong cake board out of that I might already have in the house?

Thanks for any suggestions , they're much appreciated
