I made this guitar cake for my husband, Ronnie's, birthday. I wanted to try to make it look like his guitar.
Below is a picture of Ronnie's guitar next to the cake guitar.
I baked a cake in a 9x13 pan and then cut the different parts of the guitar I needed from that and pieced them together. So, the guitar is all made from cake iced with buttercream; the details were piped on using buttercream icing also. Instead of piping the strings with icing though, I decided to use dry spaghetti to make them look more like guitar strings.
