My brother made me this cake for my 13th birthday in February. It was a cherry chip cake with butter cream frosting and it was colored purple. He used Strawberry Pocky for the whammy bar and the frets, and he used mini Reese’s buttercups for the dials. It was yummy. It took him 6 hours and he did it while I was at school.
This homemade 13th birthday guitar cake was about half the size of my grandma’s kitchen table. My whole family ate it all in just a few days. I only got two pieces :).
To make this homemade 13th birthday guitar cake he baked two separate cakes and then made a cardboard stencil to cut the shape of the cakes. He put them together and then frosted them. The colors were purple which was my favorite color, brown for the neck and white for the rest. He wouldn’t tell me what it was until he showed it to me and I thought it was really cool (considering he had never had any practice making cakes shaped like objects).
It was really really exciting. I loved this homemade 13th birthday guitar cake. It is my favorite kind and it tasted really ridiculously yummy. I liked it because it was a guitar and I really enjoy music.
I made this Bass Guitar Cake for my boyfriend's 23rd. I modeled it off his Ibanez Bass Guitar. I didn't want to make a life size cake so I found an image of the guitar on the internet and resized it to print out on an A3 sheet of paper. The hardest part was cropping and widening the guitar to proportion.
I baked two caramel mudcakes using a 22 x 22cm square cake pan and a loaf pan. I then cut out the cake using the template I made. I joined the neck to the body using frosting, but I would recommend inserting toothpicks or a skewer between the two cakes to stop the icing from cracking at the join.
The guitar is iced with buttercream frosting and the body ended up a purple colour, as the red colouring I used wasn't concentrated enough. The neck is frosting mixed with cocoa powder. I used licorice strips for the strings, dark choc Kitkats for the bars, Rolos for the knobs and Chico babies for the tuning knobs (just the torsos) and silver chachous balls.
It went down a treat at the birthday party, there was none left!
I made this guitar cake for a friend's daughter - she was celebrating her 16th Birthday. She was having a "rock-n-roll" themed birthday party and asked for a pink guitar shaped cake. I searched for pictures of guitar cakes on the internet and found a few that gave me some guidance.
I then decided to do this cake based off a guitar that my son had for a video game. The cake itself is white cake which I cut to the shape of the guitar and I made butter cream icing for decorating the cake and I just drew music notes on the board for decoration.
It really was not hard doing the entire cake in butter cream - I am not a big fan of using fondant. Making the strings were probably the hardest part of the cake. I covered a sheet of wood with a couple layers of aluminum foil and put the cake on it. This made it much easier to transport to the party location.
