I wanted to make a Guitar Birthday Cake for my friend's birthday. I have never made a cake before. I decided to start with two large rectangular cakes. I tried to color the cake, the green came out the best. I free hand cut the shape of a guitar. Then I frosted it with sweet butter cream icing. I then rolled out white fondant and placed it over the entire top.
I then smoothed out the fondant and designed a flame template. I used a toothpick to embed the design into the fondant. I then removed the template and started painting with gel coloring. To make the frets I rolled toothpicks in tin foil, to make the knobs I covered rolos in tin foil, to make the parts for the strings I used kit kats, gum drops, and string.
I then used thick electrical cable from Home Depot for the cord to the amp. It was a blast to make the cake. My next cake will be a converse Chuck Taylor, and an Astros Jersey.
I used a picture to design this Guitar Birthday Cake. It was the first cake I have ever tried to make that wasn't a regular sheet cake. I made it for my friend, Abraham's 25th Birthday. He LOVED it!
I used 2 13x9 cakes. I free handed the outline with a small paring knife, dipped in warm water. I used marshmallows for the tuning bolts on the head. I shaped the tuning knobs from foil. I used icing for the strings. I cut small circles from the excess cake for the volume knobs. I used Wilton "Red-Red" and "Black" icing coloring and just regular Betty Crocker white frosting.
There were a total of 3 parts, put together by icing. The head stalk, the neck and the body of the guitar. I know the neck was a little crooked but it was my first one and I was proud of myself. I hope you enjoy it as much as everyone at the party. Have a good day!
I made this Guitar Birthday Cake for my brother's birthday. I used Marshmallow fondant and tinted it blue. Kept a portion of it white for the strings, tinted a portion black for the middle.
The fondant was really easy to work with. Much easier than regular frosting. I just rolled it out thin and had my husband help me lift it and place on cake. The cake was made from a mold. Then just cut around and smoothed it out.
I needed to make a Hannah Montana cake for my friend's daughter. I used two 13 by 9 pans. I cut out the base of the guitar and on the other cake I cut out the handle. I used regular cake mixes which can sometimes be crumbly, so I froze the cake before I frosted it.
I also stuck it in the fridge between layers of frosting to harden the layers up. This is my Guitar Birthday Cake.
I made this guitar birthday cake for a friend of mines little girls Hannah Montana birthday party. This was the highlight of the party. It was a rather difficult cake to make. I carved the handle out of pound cake and the strings and flowers are made of fondant. The most difficult part was cutting the card board outline of the guitar.
I made this Guitar Birthday Cake for my husband's birthday. It was a Madeira sponge baked in a large rectangular tin. I traced the guitar design onto the cake, covered it in pre-coloured icing and then iced on the strings.
