I made this Hannah Montana Guitar cake for my niece's 10th birthday. I used 3 chocolate cake mixes, two Betty Crocker whipped butter cream frosting cans, two cans of whipped chocolate frosting and a hand full of small marshmallows.
To make my board, I cut two layers of heavy cardboard, taped together and covered with aluminum foil. I thought the shimmer of the foil would give it a rock start look.
I started by using the chocolate cake mixes and making three 9x13 cakes. For the main part of the guitar, I used two of the cakes one layered on top the other. I used a serrated knife to cut the shape of the guitar. For the handle, I cut the other cake in half long ways, layered one on top the other and using a knife, I cut the shape of the handle.
For the icing, I left one chocolate as is, one I colored black using Wilton icing colors. For the purple I put both cans of the butter cream into a large plastic bowl to color at the same time. I left a little bit for the strings and other decorations.
To assemble the cake I took one layer of each part of the guitar and placed it on my board that was covered in foil. I covered it in chocolate icing. Then I placed the other layer on top. I decorated it using pictures I saw on this site and a picture I took of a toy guitar in the store.
My niece loved it.

I made this Hannah Montana Guitar Cake for my daughter Haley's 6th Birthday. She absolutely loves Hannah Montana. I have never made her cake, I have always bought them and wanted to do something special for her. I used the Guitar Cake Mold. I stenciled the letters by hand and made Marshmallow Fondant, it tastes much better than the stuff you buy.
I cut out the letters, rolled them in edible purple and gold glitter dust and set them aside. I made whipped vanilla icing and tinted with Hannah Montana cake coloring in rose pink. I used chocolate icing for the wooden looking part under the strings then used black glitter gel. I used white glitter gel for the guitar strings. I then placed the letters onto the cake and placed in the fridge for 3 days until the party.
This is my very first custom cake I made and enjoyed it so much that I have decided to start my business in making custom cakes. Check out my Hula Girl Cake also. I will make and deliver your cake if you live within 1 hour of Byron, Ga as long as the order is placed within 2 weeks prior to the party date.
I made this Hannah Montana Guitar Cake for my niece's birthday, she is the biggest Hannah Montana fan (or was at the time). It is two single layer sheet cakes, one cake for the base part of the guitar and one for the neck. Everything except the strings are edible, I wanted edible strings but I searched 15+ stores looking for black or red lace licorice and couldn't find any at all.
I looked up a few different cakes online to get ideas for proportion, but in the end I just traced a guitar face from a calendar I had and then cut that out and layed it on the cake, and then carved the caked. Instead of frosting I used Marshmallow Fondant, which is super easy to work with.
To carry the cake I just lined a piece of thick cardboard with Hanna Montana wrapping paper (leftover from wrapping the gifts) and then I covered that with contact paper so it wouldn't rip or get soggy. I put the "Happy Birthday" in icing on the paper rather than the cake. All the kids and grown ups loved it.
