Guitar Cake


My first guitar cake. Started with 4 - 11x15 cakes (cake is half chocolate, half funfetti filled with vanilla butter cream). I made templates for the cake shape, neck and other decorations out of poster board. Top is beige tinted fondant that I brush painted with watered down gel food color; sides are home made chocolate fondant; line around the top is butter cream frosting; I put a piece of cake, covered in chocolate fondant under the neck for support, then laid a carved piece of modeling chocolate (candy clay) on top. White accents on the neck are royal icing (so they wouldnt smear; knob details are modeling chocolate sprayed silver with edible spray paint; strings are black licorice laces. The bord is dusted with graham crackers/brown sugar to simulate sand. I took a lot of inspiration from other cakes on here --- thanks for looking!!
