Guitar Dude Birthday Cake

This was for my eldest nephews birthday. I thought it was time to try my hand at a buttercream finish, as all my recent cakes had relied on fondant for the finish. It was a bit scary and hairy, and I take my hats off to all the CC members who accomplish a clean buttercream finish. The piano keys around the bottom are fondant and the little dude is gumpaste and is modelled on my nephew who is an avid guitar player and always has his hair in his eyes - oh teenagers! I didn't realise the photos still have supports I left in place for transport. The only other photo I have of the cake is with Sol in the backround which isn't allowed on this site. I'll have to see if my sister has some. Sorry.
