To freeze or not to freeze? - Page 2

Doesn't fishing line come on a reel? Wouldn't that be 'curly' too? I need to get something that will lie straight, without having any tension on it (the icing simply isn't strong enought icon_sad.gif )  Something like extra long florist wire would be ideal.

 

I'll try and get hold of some fishing line and see if that and/or guitar strings straighten out if they are left hanging for a while.

 

In the meantime I'll keep looking. detective.gif

(Hehe, loving these smileys thumbs_up.gif)

 

Thanks for your help,

That looks interesting and doesn't seem expensive either. I'll give it a try. Thank you. thumbs_up.gif

You most certainly could use fishing line... about making the neck in advance. If you don't use plywood covered in foil or something of the sorts, you could use cake board, rice crispy treats, royal icing and fondant...

 

PS, VERY nice work!

I have made two guitar cakes with the mud cake (have a look on my profile).  One was a full sized guitar with fishing line for the strings, the other smaller one was made by using a clay gun to get even strings.

With the fishing line one, my clever husband made the arm out of wood which i covered in baking paper then fondant.  My husband attached the strings for me but you could even staple gun them to the timber.  Good luck.

Thank you blueeyedaries.icon_smile.gif

 

kyliecake - why did you cover the wood in baking paper? Mine won't be edible, so I was just planning to cover the wooden support (bolsa wood) directly with the fondant.

I worry that kids might still try and eat the fondant.  I know my kids still pick at any fondant scraps so it's just to be extra careful.icon_smile.gif
