Guitar cake

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Im attempting a guitar cake for a friend...and I still consider myself a newbie!

Does the cake need to be a sturdy?

If Im stacking cakes I usually use Sharon's Sturdy cake recipe (with the sour cream etc)...But since Im not stacking would it be ok just to use a basic doctored cake mix? I'll be covering with BC and then fondant? But will need to carve it into shape.

I think you can use any cake for the guitar. You just need to freeze it enough to carve. I have used both sturdy and non-sturdy cakes for guitar cakes without any problem. I will post pictures once I can locate them.

I used a sturdy cake for this- marble cake with pecan buttercream


I used non- sturdy cake for this - strawberry cake with strawberry filling


Both were covered with marshmallow fondant.

Thanks so much!

Did you use the Betty Crocker template that's online?

No, I made my own template by printing a guitar, expanding it and cutting out a template on a foam core.
