Project Description

What could be better for a music-lover than their own instrument made out of cake?  The body of this guitar is made of cake, carefully carved into shape and covered with dark chocolate ganache.  The neck is elevated off the cake stand (just like it would be if it was a real guitar) and made of marshmallow-krispies – perfect for the younger guests at the party who may not be as keen on the rich dark chocolate cake.  The wood effect, brand logo and recipient’s name is all hand painted using various edible paints.  Laying on a fondant-covered 24″ long board, this is also one of the biggest celebration cakes we have made!

While it can be very daunting trying to replicate someone’s most prized possession, we had a lot of fun making this cake (and discovered a lot about guitars too!) and hope that the birthday girl enjoyed her surprise.
