I am making an acoustic guitar for a friends birthday on the weekend.

I just want to know what the best kind of cake is for carving and fondant?


Also if anyone has made a guitar before what kind of decorations/icings/lollies did you use?


Right now Im looking at licorice, lollipops and chocolate fingers.


Any ideas?

This is a quick cake I did for my son's 18th a while back (he's 23 now!).  It's his Fender strat that we bought him in the same colours.  I only did it a couple of days before his birthday as we hadn't picked up the guitar at that point.  I used coloured piping gel and royal icing.  The cake I used was madeira cake.  There is a British cake designer who has done completely freestanding cakes - she is Lara from Tasty Cakes.  She does some amazing work.

You can use any recipe for a guitar cake, especially if it is laying down.  Chill the cake thoroughly before carving.  Roll your fondant to 1/8-1/16" thick and you won't have any problems.
