I'm soooo excited about this cake. It turned out so well! Hooray! The stand is made out of a piece of wood for the base, a candlestick, a piece of mdf that has the same shape as the bottom piece of wood, a dowel, and then a wheel topped with a round wooden ball.
There are 4 pound cakes stacked to get the height of the body. This was the first cake I carved all by myself from start to finish. I usually recruit my dh for carving.
Below you can see the cake in the "carved" stage before adding the buttercream between the layers. The filling added almost 2" to the height of the dummy.

That is AWESOME! How funny that you get your dh to do the carving...me too! The customer *should* have been pleased. I can't imagine how you got that jacket done, seams so smooth, pattern so neat. It looks amazing--great job!
That is awesome!
Amazing. You should be very proud of yourself. I would never have guessed it was a cake if all I saw was the picture. Great job. Can't wait to see your guitar.
Your cake is lovely. Right now I could see a wedding dress out of your craving (hint, hint).
Your work is excellent as usual.
As well you should be, it turned out unbelievable!!!!!!!
