I will get a picture tomorrow, and will definitely let yall know. I have plenty of time to prepare, which is usually not the case with me. LOL.

Now that you have pointed it out I am getting nervous. Thanks, lol. I am hoping I am not in over my head. Everyone around here usually just gets sheets cakes so as long as it is decent looking I should be good. Although I am shooting for AWESOME!!!!

the best and easiest search I have found when looking for cakes, is click galleries, then the search button on the galleries. great results everytime.

I got to do my first not too long ago. I was actually dreading it, but it turned out okay.

I did figure out a little tip that helped with the guitar strings. Thought I'd share:

I used my clay extruder, and at first the strings got all stuck together as they came out. Frustrating!! I stuck a tiny doubled-up piece of aluminum foil on the inside of the shape-making disk inside the extruder so that only two holes were open. When only 2 strands of fondant were coming out of the extruder, it was easy to separate them on my counter. I used a gray fondant and painted them silver before I put them on the guitar.

Your cakes are really cool, so I know this guitar will be also. Be sure to post pix.
