Coolest Guitar Grooms Cake Cheesecake

Coolest Guitar Grooms Cake Cheesecake

This guitar cheesecake was a joy to make. This is my first time making this particular cake and especially a cheesecake/cake combo. The base of the cake is made from my own brownie recipe which lended it self as great support for the cheesecake.

The cheesecake is a chocolate cheesecake. Chocolate fudge was used to cement or fuse the brownie base and the cheesecake to each other. A butter cream icing was used to cover the cake. Candy was used to serve as the tuners and for the strings. The coolest thing about this cake is that it had to be transported 100 miles and needed to remain in a chilled state. Therefore, the cake had to be moved in two parts. As a result, the arm and the body were separated for transport and reassembled upon arrival at it's destination. I used a template I made from a picture of a guitar as my guide.

My 6 year old Scott loves Rock Band and Guitar Hero for the XBOX so he wanted a cake like his guitar.
I made a pattern for the guitar out of paper, tracing the guitar. I used a Wilton 11x15 inch pan and 2 store bought cake mixes. Followed the package directions. Let the cake cool over night. I cut out the body of the guitar then the arm out of the remaining cake.
Frosted the cake with butter cream frosting.

I then made marshmallow fondant, out of Jet Puff Marshmallows, water and powder sugar. After letting it cool. I rolled out the fondant to cover the guitar. After cutting around the guitar, I Painted the white fondant black using black food coloring and vanilla extract. With the remaining fondant I made the buttons and a whammy bar. Then I outlined the guitar in white butter cream frosting and wrote Happy Birthday Scott.

I made this Guitar Hero Cake for my grandsons Jake 5 and Travis 3. Finding a board to display it on was probably the hardest. I used 3 cake mixes and made a template out of cardboard. I crumb coated with buttercream and covered with colored fondant and used whitie fondant for the inlays.

Chocolate fondant was used for the neck. Black string licorice for the strings, Rolo candies with royal icing for the knobs and jellied candy for the tuning pieces. The names and writing were free hand with chocolate, chilled and placed on the top.

I made this Guitar Cake as a surprise for my niece's 16th birthday, and boy was she surprised. I even surprised myself on how great everything turned out. With my husband's help with the construction to my kid's taste testing.

This cake is my most challenging to date, but I intend on making more. The more challenging the better I say. I just loved the look on my niece's face when I walked through the door with this cake, " Priceless"!

Wow, this is so beautiful, clean and realistic! Just wondering, is it fondant-covered? If not, how did you get such a smooth finish? Also, what did you do for strings? Again, fantastic job!

Yes It Is fondant. I just Wiped the fondant with a clean towelette to get a shiny finish. the Guitar strings Are The only thing Thats Not Edible, it;s actually upholstery thread.

I made this Guitar Hero Birthday Cake for a twelve year old who loved the game. Two layers of sheet cake that were cut from a template I made by tracing the actual guitar on some poster board.

I iced it and wrapped it with fondant and then put the details on it.
