Homemade Guitar Cake

Homemade Guitar Cake

This guitar cake is a huge endeavor and labor of love for my 16 yr. old rocker son. This is a full scale guitar cake, white/Chocolate Marble.

I used 2 - 18 x 22 sheet pans. I used one sheet for the body. Carved the shape and the indention's for the input and pickups. Decorated this part first. Iced it first with buttercream icing and let set. I had prepared the fondant days earlier (I make my own, tastes MUCH better). Rolled it out to 1/8in or as thin as I could get it and place on cake.

I used professional airbrush color for cake and airbrushed the red. Let set for 1 hour. In the meantime I cut all the stripes and placed those. Everything you see is edible and made out of fondant, except for the string (which is thread). I paid close attention to detail as to make this guitar so realistic, some people didn't even realize it was cake.

I baked the second cake the next day, prepared it the same way, cut to shape: neck and headstock. I then airbrushed it lightly with brown. While that set, I paid attention to the detail needed for frets and the dots and touched up on the entire cake. When the 2nd cake was complete, I pieced the two together. They were already on two cake boards, I just put them together on an aluminum foiled 2x4 piece of thin plywood ($3.24 at LOWES).

It was amazing and tasted just as good as it looked.

I made this Black Electric Guitar Birthday Cake Design for a friend. I started with 2-12" square cakes, lightly frosted and frozen. I made the template from a picture sent to me of the original guitar. I put the squares next to each other and laid the template on top. I used a serrated knife to carve out the cake. I molded tootsie rolls and put them on toothpicks for the tuners. Used airheads for the knobs, sticks from dip in sticks, and black licorice for the strings. I sprayed them with edible silver spray.

Coolest Girl Rockband Cake 366

Homemade Girl Rockband Cake

Homemade Girl Rockband Cake

This Girl Rockband Cake was fun to make. I used Wilton butter cream frosting and butter cake recipe's from the Wilton website. All decorations were made from homemade fondant. The only parts non-edible were the doll parts that consisted of the upper bodies with a spike at the bottom to push into the pants of the fondant. The kids loved it.
