I've always been a bit of a lurker here I'm afraid but am "coming out" now!!
I set up my (legal) home business recently and have had my first order off a complete stranger (orders up until now have been through word of mouth/friends). Not an easy first order...she wanted this ->http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1594389&sub=1594399 reincarnating in cake!
Anyway I finished it just now, and it's due for delivery tomorrow. I'm "ok" about how it turned out, I mean it was never going to be an exact replica but I'm a bit "Ufff" about it. The guitar strings are just so darn UGLY. What would have been the best way to do guitar strings? Bit late now, but i'll know for next time!
To say that I'm nervous about this delivery is an understatement!!!! Im just grateful that it's a single tier and I dont have to worry about it collapsing en route!!!
This is the finished cake-> http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1594389
Good job with copying the design!
I use spaghetti noodles and airbrush them with silver highlighting dust. Got that tip from C.C. and it was a great one!
I'm sure they will enjoy their cake!
I used fishing wire on my guitar cake and secured them using cocktail sticks at either end. And have heard of people using jewelry wire and silver thread.
Ahh I didn't even think of inedible! Thank you both for the suggestions! Hindsight is a wondeful thing.
