This was my first time using fondant,I don't think it turned out too bad! I made this guitar cake for my nephew's birthday. He wanted a real guitar but got a cake instead. I researched the guitar online to get an idea of what it looked like.

I made a stencil out of a sheet of cardboard. The main body of the guitar was made out of a 9x13 cake (2 layers). I put the stencil on cake and cut it out. The main body was covered with cream cheese frosting and had (satin ice)black fondant accents. The neck was also made by 9x13 cake(1) and covered in fondant.

The stars are fondant also and I just used a star cookie cutter to make them. It took what seemed like forever to finish but it was worth it!

I actually used a Guitar Hero Guitar as a template for this life sized guitar cake. Trace the actual guitar onto a very large piece of cardboard, then keeping in mind you'll be using 2 rectangular cakes, cut the cardboard guitar into pieces that you can fit together to make the guitar.

Once the cakes are ready, you can use your cardboard templates to cut the cakes into the pieces you'll need. Once your cake is fitted together, ice it all white, then add accents (I used various candies to replicate the guitar). The one thing I would definitely do differently is to use black food coloring paste as opposed to the spray on black food coloring that didn't quite make the guitar "arm" look as black as it should.

Have fun and be creative!

We had a music themed party for my three year old daughter who loves to perform by singing and "playing" a guitar. Crafts included making shakers by filling water bottles with rice using a funnel, stringing bells on pipe cleaners, and making people maracas (yarn for hair, glue on eyes).

We played musical chairs, freeze dance, and sang songs into microphones bought at a dollar store. We also had a pinata shaped like a guitar. The guitar cake was made with a Wilton guitar cake pan and followed the directions to decorate the cake.

To make this guitar cake I used the Wilton Guitar pan #2105-570. The bottom is a half sheet cake iced smooth. I piped the flame and accessorized first using a #18 star tip.

Using star tip #21, I piped remaining guitar. Using tip #21 I piped a boarder around the base cake. This was my fist time with the flames, next time I will use a template I have since made from heavy weight card stock.

We downloaded a picture of the guitar and enlarged it to make two templates for this guitar cake. One for the guitar neck which we covered with chocolate bars and the second template we used two 9 " pans and two rectangle pans for the body.

We used buttercreme icing and fondant to make the knobs and frets. We used gold metallic cord for the guitar strings.

I like your ideas. It was clever to think of the gold for the guitar strings. I'm sure the recipient was very pleased. Nice job you two!
