So in march i made my brother a full sized electric ibanez guitar that he was able to pick up and play.

I now need to try match that or go a little further as its my sisters 30th in two weeks.i did have her cake all planned out ... shes a big chocolate lover and that was the theme, however since i planned her cake she's fallen pregnant and has gone off chocolate LOL 

Ive been so busy the last few months ive just hit a brick wall and cant get the creative cogs turning.

All crazy ideas welcome 

 

She is a nurse

Loves to travel

Loves kids

Tgi's is her fave place to go for a meal

 

Any suggestions will be appreciated

What's her favorite thing about TGIs? I love their Jack Daniels Burgers, I almost had my own table at the one by my old house. 

 

Maybe you could do something with their pins and places she likes to travel to. Maybe find some real ones online?

Perhaps an all in one cake? That would be pretty interesting...You could make a cake with her in a nurse's outfit, with suitcases around her and her eating a Jack Daniel's burger with some kids...hmm...ambitious...and a guitar? Do you have a pic?

That is so awesome! How did it hold up with him holding it? Did you make it out out rice krispys?

It held up pretty well i was happy how it turned out.My brother actually sent a few pic's of it to ibanez and they featured it on their facebook page in march.

The main body of it was all cake i didnt use any rice krispy for this one.it was tricky to keep the real strings,mechanism's etc seperate from the edible parts of the cake lol

Wow! That is awesome. How long did it take you to put this all together?

chrisgallagher Posted 19 Jun 2013 , 8:04pm

It was about 7hrs from start to finish... but it was my first time making a guitar cake playable so i had taken a bit longer than expected :-)

Making desserts look like savory dishes is awesome. Top Chef Just Desserts did one. Someone made it look like beef wellington. Amazing! You could make a cake with a bunch of different things off their menu. Or pick one and make the whole plate with sides, etc.

What a fun, cool cake! I love the lettuce borders and the fries that look like they were flung every where (though I know they were meticulously placed). Awesome work!
