I was asked to make a guitar hero cake and I have been looking at some of them here on CC. I thought the Wilton pan was shaped more like an electric guitar. I was wrong! lol. How do you get that electric guitar shape? I was thinking about using the actual Guitar hero guitar and making a template. Any other ideas on how to get that shape? Is there a pan out there like the Guitar hero? Any tips would be welcome!! thanks CC people!
I think that is really what you are going to have to do. I had to come up with a guitar template on my own for my guitar cake I got it figured out by looking at it. and it really was not too bad to carve. So I say go for it. If you are good at free hand you may not even need the template. Good Luck!
I did a guitar cake. I used freezer paper to draw a template. I traced my pan on the freezer paper and cut it out. I then used pictures of the guitar to sketch out the shape. When I was satisfied with my shape I cut it out, laid it on top of my cake (I used a 12x1 and used a serrated edged knife to cut it out. I then trimmed the top edges to get a rounded look, and built up the rounded look a little more with icing. I covered the cake in fondant. I used foam core for the stem. Here's a picture of my cake.
I did a guitar cake. (The pic is up under my profile). It is a Les Paul cake, but I used the guitar hero guitar as my template. (The shapes are the same.
I used a 12X12 pan and a 13X9 pan then just pieced it all together.
Good luck with it!
