Hey! I have to make a Hannah Montanna electric guitar this week and I'm curious how to make the strings really straight. I've heard of making the strings out of spaghetti. How is this done? Is the spaghetti covered in icing? If so, how? Are electric guitar springs light brown like spaghetti. Please help. Thanks!

I made an electric bass guitar using spaghetti for strings. I dry dusted them with silver lustre dust before applying to the cake. Super easy. HTH. icon_smile.gif

I used dry spagetti noodles and painted them with a brush with black coloring. Hope it helps. It is posted on my pictures.

Hey! I've painted the spaghetti with edible silver paint. They look great until they dry because they kind of warp. Any ideas on how to fix this. I may end up just using silver floral wire, but I'd prefer to have everything on the cake edible. I'm finishing it this afternoon. Thanks!

I made a guitar cake for a friends son (in my photos) and I extruded the strings with a clay gun. It took some time because its a small hole you have to use but it was worth it. they were wonderful. I would suggest mixing a bit of shortening into the fondant before loading the gun, it just makes it come out a bit easier.

DRY dust with silver lustre dust. No warping, works great.
