Guitar Cake - life-size

Project Description

Do you sell this cake? Yes Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Sorry the picture isnt that good, it was dark at the venue and I forgot my camera. Chocolate & vanilla cake, rice krispie treats, buttercream icing, royal icing, gumpaste, airbrush, star cutters (I cut the tiny ones out by hand), clay extruder, silver highlighter dust w/ vodka, 1/2" core board - cut to shapes & covered with wood grain looking contact paper, gold metalic heavy thread, skewers, tylose glue, Wiltons silcone mold for letters/numbers, Cricut Cutter for the Hannah Montana Logos What are you most proud of? I really like how it turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Templates are your friend - use them!! This was transported in two parts. I made it so the handle could be removed - I felt it gave it a more realistic look without a complete board under the entire shape of the cake.

Q&A with DeannaSB

Garden Baker asked:
Fantastic job! What is the handle made of and what stops it from cracking in the middle when placed at that angle?
DeannaSB answered:
the handle is made out of rice krispy treats that sit on top of 1/4" foam board. its very light. no need to support where it sits on the cake, the top of the handle its supported underneath with a piece of foam board cut to proper height
