Electrify Me!

My sister got married this past year and I was given the task of making the grooms cake. I accepted thinking maybe a chocolate cake with some strawberries and the like. Something easy. Yeah, well, my sister had a different idea.

She wanted an electric guitar for her soon to be husband.


Except she wanted it all black and white. That's what my soon to be Brother-in-Law likes.

After picking up my jaw off of the floor, I agreed. What can I say, I really like my BIL. He's awesome and he really did deserve an awesome cake. SOOOO... With only 2 months to prepare and design the cake, I had to get a move on it.

I cut the bottom part of the guitar out of a cricut diecut and took it to get it blown up at the copy machine place. Then I transfered it over to heavy duty chipboard. I then used my gypsy to design the center pieces of the guitar and cut them out with the Cricut Cake.

The silver accents were colored with shimmer powders that were combined with a bit of vodka to make it liquid and produce a paint.

I added all the accents to it. The handle of the cake was done in rice crispies treats and the head was more cake.

And this was his cake. Lemon Cake with Pinapple filling since that is his favorite.

Thanks for looking!
