This is a guitar cake I made for my daughter's 8th birthday. She, like every other 8 year old girl in the world, loves Hannah Montana. I searched the internet for a cake that my daughter would like. I found the idea for a guitar on ,you guessed it, this site.
I used 2 cake mixes. I put each one in a 9x13 pan and baked according to package directions. When cooled, I placed a template for the guitar shape over one cake and cut it out using a sharp knife. I drew this freehand by looking at a picture my daughter had.
Then, I cut the other cake to make the neck of the guitar. I placed them together on a foil covered board and coated them with a crumb coat to seal in the crumbs. I used a homemade butter cream icing and chose the colors of the cake to match the rest of the party decorations. I added a couple of pictures of Hannah and Miley and secured them with icing. I did this by cutting out a couple of pieces of plastic and sticking some Hannah and Miley stickers onto it.
This cake was a huge hit with the girls at her party.
I made this guitar cake for my granddaughter's 7th Birthday, she loves Hannah Montana and the cake was a surprise. I started out making two half sheet cakes, two chocolate cake mixes and one strawberry cake mix per cake. I made the chocolate batter then swirled the strawberry through the chocolate, it was really good.
I froze one of the cakes and cut the guitar shape out of it. I added a half a cup extra vegetable oil to each cake mix, it makes more of a dense cake and it's easier to maneuver and decorate.
To decorate I made yellow, pink and purple icing. I iced the bottom layer then put the still froze guitar shape on top and iced that cake with the yellow icing. I then outlined the letters H and M with a toothpick. I then decorated the guitar with a star tip, used a shell tip for the borders and a writing tip for the Happy Birthday.
I made this guitar cake for a lady I work with. Her nephew loves Guitar Hero! Once I actually figured out what Guitar Hero was, I started by preparing a 1/2 sheet cake. She requested chocolate.
I froze the cake overnight, just to make it a bit easier to handle. I cut the 1/2 sheet cake into the shape of the bottom of the guitar. I used the 2 left over blocks to extend the neck and the head. I used black icing for the sides, white for the top and grey for the neck and head.
I drew the flames on freehand with a toothpick then filled in the area with red, then orange then topped the flames off with yellow to give it a more depth. I piped everything else on with a round tip.
I was told that the birthday boy was really surprised and that the chocolate cake was delicious!!
My friend commissioned me to make a guitar cake for her son's 4th birthday. She then asked me if I could replicate his guitar.
Made from scratch I used, peanut free products and baking methods. Used 2 x 18 cake sheet pan to bake the cake and my husband's guitar to generate a template to cut the shape.
I used bolsa wood to create the base, opening and finger board and then covered it with black fondant and silver thread to create the look of the strings.
The final touch was dusting the finger board with silver pearl dust. Here is the finish product. All made from scratch. Fudge chocolate cake, chocolate moose frosting and vanilla butter cream cheese filling. It served 16-20 kids and I'm told even the grown ups loved it.
