This Guitar cake, inspired by Eddie Van Halen and Guitar Hero, was for our eight year old son who’s recently mastered the Guitar Hero Series of games on Nintendo’s WII. The little monster plays the game on some type of HYPER speed with his back turned which makes me wonder what he will do with that talent later in life. It’s really a hilarious sight to see and I’ll try to get a video of him in action.
The guitar cake is vanilla with a chocolate handle. The photo you see here does not have the guitar strings in place yet, since I came up with a better solution for them tonight, and I have to run to the store tomorrow to pick up the product.
This cake is fondant over our signature butter cream icing, which is receiving huge accolades recently from our customers. This guitar cake is a yard long and should serve 25 to 30 kids.
This Hannah Guitar Cake was a request for a Girl's 7th Birthday. She's a huge Hannah Fan. This was my first attempt on a Guitar and I was pleased with the results, even if the making made me almost crazy.
I had a friend of mine draw an outline for the guitar. I transferred it onto wax paper. The cake was cut out of 3 square 9x13 cakes. It was all chocolate (birthday girl wish) and chocolate buttercream. I then covered it with fondant, which I wasn't happy with at all. So I ended up covering it with purple frosting. All the other accents are made of fondant.
The strings I made out of spaghetti. The birthday girl loved it.
I made this Guitar Hero Birthday Cake for my husband's surprise 30th birthday party. The base of the guitar was shaped/cut out of a 10x15 cake pan - using two cake mixes. The guitar handle was made from rice krispie treats. I used the actual guitar hero guitar as a guide to decorating.
Everything was decorated with buttercream icing, except for the Guitar Hero "logo". I printed this out off the computer and cut it out and used wax paper to lay between it and the cake so the icing and everything would seep through the paper.
This Hannah Montana Electric Guitar Cake was, believe it or not, cut from a 1/4 sheet with very little waste. Took the side off the 1/4 sheet, used it for the neck, and carved the shape of the body, using one small piece for the top of the neck.
All buttercream icing and airbrush. I love how forgiving and airbrush is! I will space my strings a little better next time. They loved it!
