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.
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.
AYup aame here, i used the wilton guitar cake pan and covered and decorated the cake with fondant. No carving! [IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3203615/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
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.
