I am finishing up a guitar cake for a friends son. The body of the guitar is cake covered in blue buttercream with fondant accents. The neck is rice crispy treats covered in fondant, wood grain painted with food coloring. I was originally going to cover the wood board I am custom cutting for this cake in blue marbeled fondant. I am not at all sure that is a good idea now. My daughter said she thought grey black marbeled fondant, I was thinking maybe covering in fondant and painting in wood grain like the neck. Any suggestions. I dont want to ruin the look of the cake by mesing up the board it is on. thanks

I'm leaning more towards your DD's idea.....w/a bit of brown mixed into it.

Your question gave me an idea I thought I'd share. In fact, might just do it myself.

The idea is collecting those cards in the wall paint department in a local department store with all the different colors on it, eventually getting most of them. Then if you're not sure of a combination, you can use the little rectangles to see them togetber.

Just a thought.
