    How do you say raspadilla?

    It is very popular in Peru in the summer months. Search for images if you do not know what it is.
    The machine used to make raspadillas is ice slushy? Mr. Slushy machine?

    Looking the the pictures, I'd call it a snow cone.

    It also looks like the "Italian Ice" that you can buy from street vendors in New York City.

    De nada. I'm happy to help.

    Your other question:
    The machine for making snow cones is simply called... a snow cone machine. :)

    In my opinion, I have found a better translation for "raspadilla". It's "shaved ice", and, when shaved ice is served in cones, you can say "snow cone". Both are flavored after the ice has been shaved.
    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shaved_ice
