I am making a cake for a birthday party this Saturday. The cake is supposed to be in the shape of a guitar pick like the one below ,and it is going to have the words, "Fender Heavy," on it. I'm really into baking, in fact I wants to bake as a career, but I'm a bit lost as to how we should handle creating a stencil for the letters, and how to create a, "stencil," of sorts to cut the guitar pick shape out with.

I am hoping to do some kind of pound cake, and I'm making fondant in order to get the purple, marble texture.

Basically, what I'm asking is, do you know how I should make a stencil for the words as they are on that style of guitar pick, and what would be the best way to cut out the cake in the shape of a pick?

Sorry to double-post, but the image doesn't appear to have posted correctly...

Also, my girlfriend is the one making the cake. I am simply posting the question here.

If it's the exact wording on your pick pic, then just use your computer (or take it to Kinkos) and enlarge it. For the PC, I use a freeware program called PosteRazor. You can use it to shape your pick and use it to make your letters. If you can reverse the image (or flip it over) you can pipe over it on parchment paper. Or take that same enlarged image printed on cardstock and cut the letters out. You can use the cut letters as a template to cut fondant letters, or use the paper with the missing letters to airbrush through. Bottom line... you have lots of options! Hope that helped!
