My little girl had a rock diva party for her 7th birthday and wanted an Electric Guitar Birthday Cake that looked exactly like her real electric guitar. Whew! I started with a 1/2 sheet chocolate pound cake (frozen) and cut out the body using a pattern I made with parchment paper using her real guitar.
I crumb coated it, let is sit, then iced it with red (no flavor) butter cream icing. I used fondant and gum paste for the details, adhering them with more buttercream. The fret board is made using a sheet of rice crispy treat and the covered in icing and brown fondant. I used silver metallic powder mixed with vanilla extract to paint the knobs.
The only thing that stumped me was the strings. I tried black licorice strings but that didn't work so well, they kept curling up. Next time I'll probably try piping black icing using a guide. This cake was a winner with all the girls. I received tons of orders after this!

My daughter Noelle, celebrated her 10th birthday and used "Rock Star" as the theme. I've always loved baking but my creations never came out that great visually. I used the Wilton guitar cake pan, and mainly followed the decorating instructions for the Electric Guitar Birthday Cake, but instead of making all the frostings, I did buy a black premade (the one that comes with the tips) and I also added Wilton purple edible glitter to the whole thing, it was a huge hit.
Because it was a big party, I made two cakes and stacked them with a layer of frosting and they held together well! I put normal foil on a cake board, and then put the whole thing into a cake box. The colors were vibrant and it tasted great too! This was my first time doing a cake like this and the star tip for decorating was really easy!
This Fender Guitar Cake was made for a retirement party for an officer at work. He is a guitar collector. It is chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing. I used a picture from the internet and traced around the edges to give me the shape of the guitar.
Although this was a fun cake to make it was a big challenge for me because I cannot draw. Everyone seemed to like it and said it was delicious. Looking forward to my next challenge, a cake for a new pastor.
I'm an Italian girl (I'm from Sicily) and I made this Fender Strato Cake for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. The guitar body is made of sponge cake, or what we call "Pan di Spagna" filled with three layers of custard cream, covered with almonds batter (Sicilian "pasta reale"). The handle is the same but covered with chocolate.
Then I made the pick-up with vanilla wafer, the licorice strings and white chocolate potentiometers. And this is the result!
