Electric Guitar Birthday Cake Ideas Please.

dotty23, Jul 22, 5:34am
Hello people. I'm going to make an electric guitar birthday cake for my daughter,and was wondering if anyone had any ideas for the various parts please. I have checked out a few online & see one person used the gold covered hersheys chocs for the knobs which looked effective. I'd especially love ideas for the strings. I've made an acoustic guitar cake before & wasn't particularly happy with the strings. I think I tried licorice & ended up just putting lines on with rolled up pettinice. I'm just an amateur so don't have any fancy gear. Just wondering if others out there have made one & what they used.Thanks in advance.

Not much help from me. I just looked in my cake book, which has an acoustic guitar, and they use hat elastic, so definitely not edible!

What about the licorce that is grooved! You could cut it so that its very fine for the strings

What about spaghetti (raw) nice straight lines.not tasty but would look like strings!

How about just piping icing to make the strings!

facebook or browse rozzies cakes. She is awesome. Lots of good ideas. Pretty sure she has done an electric guitar too.

Not sure if it would work but what about using fondant icing/coloured beforehand rolled out in really thin sausages! It would be edible and you should be able to get it pretty straight :)

Royal icing piped for strings, or spaghetti, brushed with silver.Those long rice noodles cooked few seconds then you can handle them, and layed out to dry. Or for unedible ones, white or silver embroidery floss, or fishing line.

Awesome cake! I'm thinking I could even cover the top of the neck of guitar in a rectangle of melted chocolate (to make it look like wood) & then pipe on strings with white melted choc! Going to be an interesting exercise I can see! Thanks everyone.

If anyone's interested, I managed to find a very simple solution to my guitar strings! The kids told me those sour strap lollies (4 colours, sugar coated long straps) actually pull apart.So I bought a few of those & carefully pulled the colours apart.so easy & so effective!

if you buy those boxes of licrish medleys, they have the licrish strings in them as part of the mixture,

In the latest Australian Women's Weekly ( page 145) there is "Murray's Guitar) from the Wiggles LOL. The whole recipe, including all the shapes appear on age 150
