Guitar Cake for Andre

Guitar Cake for Andre


This is a very challenging cake project! A guitar cake!

I spent hours before making this cake, googling hundreds of pictures, to make sure that I get the details exactly like a real guitar. I have no guitar myself, so googling it is my homework.

I am quite perfectionist person. I want the guitar cake to look exactly like the real one, especially the neck & headstock parts that require so much details & techniques.

This cake feeds 30 & it’s a Mocha Sponge Cake filled with Mocha Swiss Meringue Buttercream & coated with Mocha Ganache.

The body is about 40 x 30 cm. I haven’t even had time to measure the whole length :(

So this is the body. The side is painted with Copper colour.

The guitar heel.

Now..the most time consuming part is the neck & headstock. I want this part to elevate from the surface. I have to make sure the headstock is just at the right angle against the height of the body.

I’m so pleased with how the neck & headstock turn out finally. The angle just fits the height of the body rightly.

The challenging part is connecting the strings from the bridge pin to the tuners. I use teeth floss :) & it works perfectly.

The picture is a bit over exposed :( the flash kept on coming out due to the poor lighting.

Overall, after around 15 hours of working, I’m very pleased with the result.

Happy birthday Andre! I hope you enjoy it.
