Hey there GGG followers,
Listening to: For The Win – We Are The In Crowd
This was a design I made last year. It was my niece’s 7th birthday and the theme nonetheless was Hannah Montana. My sister requested that I make a cake for her and of course, I did! I will be sharing with you my guitar cake.
Now, as I mentioned before I still haven’t learned how to bake my cake from scratch so this cake again is a two layer cake using ready mixed rainbow candy cake mix as the top layer and chocolate as the bottom.
After baking the two layers, I lay one on top of the other using vanilla icing to hold the center.
I then cut the cake into a guitar shape and cut a shallow square at the top of the guitar for the cardboard neck of the guitar which I added at the end. I iced the entire cake so, that I can “paste” on the fondant.
Earlier I had kneaded white and pink fondant together to make a swirl design. If you wish to receive the same effect, just knead your two coloured fondants but only for a short period so, you don’t lose the two shades.
I rolled the fondant out and placed it on top of the cake, the icing – acting as a glue.
I dry brushed edible silver glitter onto the fondant to give it a shine and glimmer effect. Add a light dab each time as you will find that the glitter will just form large clumps of streaks on your fondant.
I rolled out two white rectangle fondant shapes and three knob like shaped fondant pieces, dry brushing them with the silver glitter. I had rolled out yellow fondant and shaped them into stars placing them onto the cake. Using vanilla icing, I outlined the guitar strings and wrote Ana on the guitar. Along the side of the cake, I had iced on silver dragees. You’ve got to be super patient for this part.
I then added my cardboard neck to the cake to give the cake a full guitar look.
And there you have it! Until next time.
Compliment someone today
