So a few years ago, I made a build-a-bunny birthday cake for Kiah. Yay for repeat customers! She's a little older now (this was back in April or May of 2015) and her interests have changed a bit. Now she is into Taylor Swift. So her mom asked me to make her a guitar cake.
I bought a guitar pan in order to make it easier to make the correct shape. It came out very nicely.
I started by adding the "wood" of the guitar.
Next I added the bridge, the neck, and the sound hole, along with the sides of the guitar. The darker parts are made with chocolate frosting. I think I used a tip to get the sides to look so nice and clean. The tip was the perfect size and it looks really good!
Then I started adding some details to make it look a little fancier.
Including Taylor Swift's signature!
Next I added the strings.
And the frets.
But the guitar needs a little color.
So I added a flower.
And we have a beautiful, autographed guitar.
And then we load it into the box and it's ready to go! it almost looks like you could play it.
So even though it's more than a year late, Happy Birthday Kiah!
