I wondered what everyone has used for the neck of the guitar. I thought of using a thin foam board and covering in fondant. Thinking of using real string.

i use the thicker foam core and i pipe the strings on with RI. i get the neck done at the beginning of the week so its all ready. strings are the very last thing i do on the guitar.

I made a guitar hero cake for my grandson's birthday and I used rice krispies treats to mold the neck. I used his guitar to trace myself a template and used that as I molded the neck. Of course it helped that the guitar can be separated at the neck. Made it easier to draw my templates.

I haven't actually done one in fondant yet,only in buttercream.I normally just use candy melts poured into the pan to get the right shape.I'm going to try one in fondant for Father's day,maybe.

I used cake, elevated on foamcore. I think i would just use foamcore next time... for strings I used spaghetti w/ lustre dust

Great ideas! Thanks so much!! I remember reading about the spaghetti noodles for the strings. I think that would be a great alternative to using real string. I don't know about piping RI in a straight line! icon_confused.gif I would probably not get it straight enough. Thought about Rice Krispies too..
