Homemade Guitar Birthday Cake

I made this Guitar Birthday Cake for my Mother-in-Law's 70th Birthday. I have made many celebration cakes but this is the first guitar-shaped cake I have tried.

I made an 8" round, a 6" round and a 6" square cake, then cut and shaped them together. I brushed some orange jam onto the surface and covered it with sugar paste, which I coloured using food colouring paste (making a 'wood' grain by adding some darker brown and not blending it in completely). I made the butterflies from sugar paste and painted patterns on them with a fine brush.

After I had piped the strings, the fun started! When I moved the cake onto a table the strings broke into little pieces as the two boards I had joined together were not quite level.
I had to redo the strings which was a bit of a pain.

I used a large storage box to transport the cake and luckily it reached the party without any strings breaking!

18 th bday cake

My lil bro loves to play guitars and write his own music. He is turning 18 on March 15 and what better than a guitar cake for his bday. I checked out this cool website you're on now and thought, " Hey I think I can", and "I did"!! I started @ 4 pm and baked 3 11x9 cakes and made my own stencil from one of his guitars. I then started to cut/ shape the cake and then frosted them. I mixed 3 different color shades. I used real parts that I bought @ Sam Ash. I love Sam Ash, they are awesome!!!! I used kisses for the tuners. By 9:30 pm. I'm am so tired now, but I did it!!! I sure hope he likes it and can't wait to sing Happy Birthday and take a pic of him seeing it, hope he doesn't peek. Good Luck on your cake, you too can do it!

Coolest Guitar And Drum Cake 104

Homemade Guitar And Drum Cake

Homemade Guitar And Drum Cake

This guitar and drum cake was for my son's 1st birthday. I used a mold and then free handed the electric guitar shape and all of the decorations with white icing that I colored to make the colors I wanted. I started at about 8pm and finished with it at about 1pm.

For the drum cake I just used a regular two layer round cake and some fondant to make the ridge around the top and bottom. I also colored the cake orange using food coloring that I pored into the batter. This was my second cake that I have decorated.

Homemade Guitar Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my niece's birthday last year. She is learning to play guitar so she wanted a red guitar with musical notes. I printed the guitar off the internet and sized it to scale, then traced it onto the top of the cake and filled it in with a star tip. The pick ups (white dots at the base of the strings) are candy balls. I printed the musical notes as well and practiced drawing them with a pen and paper, then piped them freehand onto the cake.

Homemade Guitar Birthday Cake

Did this life size electric guitar cake for my son's 14th birthday. His band did a live poolside performance and the invitations were CD's.

Traced his guitar on freezer paper to make a pattern. Three 9x13 cakes were enough. The candy is Kit Kat bars, Tic Tacs, Reeses, Good N' Plenty, M&M's and Dentine Ice on toothpicks.

The Guitar Birthday Cake was a big hit!

I made this Guitar Bag Birthday Cake for a friend's granddaughter. I baked a buttercake, cut it in half. Did a crumb coat with butter cream then rolled some royal icing and added some decorations.

This one was a hit.

Job very well done I love your creativity with this cake. I used your cake as a guide when designing my own Rock Star Guitar #213. Thank you for sharing it!
