This Violin cake was for a Bat Mitzvah for a good friend’s daughter. She wanted the violin color to match her invitations, hence the teal color. I borrowed a real violin to give me an idea on the size and details. The strings are real violin strings that I purchased at a music shop, as nothing I could make would be strong enough to go over the bridge of the instrument.
Everything else is made from gumpaste or fondant. The “music” base is fondant sheets that I handpainted with black food coloring to simulate sheets of music. This was a fun cake to do!
