I bought the largest pan I could find and used two boxes of cake mix and three cans of frosting for this guitar with microphone cake. I prepared the pan by greasing and flouring the bottom before pouring the cake mix in. Bake for 30 minutes at 325 and let it cool before flipping it out of the pan.
I covered a large piece of heavy cardboard with foil. After the cake cooled I placed the cardboard on top of the pan and held each side as I turned it over. The cake came out very easy but did have a little flour around the edges which peeled off with ease. I made my own pattern. The top of the guitar was a separate piece that I frosted together. I used Pink Vanilla frosting for the body and top of the guitar and Chocolate for the neck.
Before frosting I put the cake in the freezer, it's a great tip! I used York peppermint patties as the knobs, purple frosting as pickups, black decorative writing pens for the strings and marshmallows for the machine heads (knobs at the top where the strings are attached). I had cake left over and thought it would be cool to add a microphone.
My Daughter had a Hannah Montana party and this cake was such a hit. It was so fun and easy to make!

This was one of my daughter's cakes. Hannah Montana theme, as best I could. LOL.
The guitar is boxed mix red velvet cake, and I used canned cream cheese frosting. I used the Wilton guitar shaped pan for this one. I marbled purple and white marshmallow fondant to cover it, made other decorations out of fondant, and piped the strings on with royal icing.
The cupcakes, though you can't see them very well, had rice paper decorations with pictures of Hannah on them, "Happy Birthday" and my daughter's name.
This homemade Hannah Montana guitar cake took me about 8 or 9 hours in total. It was one of my first projects before I really got into the decorating.
To make this Hannah Montana Guitar cake, I blew up a picture of a guitar on the computer, printed it off and taped it together. I then traced it on a cake so that I could cut out the exact shape. I used fondant for the pieces on the guitar and drew the strings on with buttercream.
