Making a Guitar Cake

Ashlyn wanted a Guitar Cake for her birthday party and wasn't sure how to go about making it with out a pan, but I found a way. First I baked 2 1/2 boxes of cake to fill a 12x18 cake pan. While the cake was baking I used our guitar hero guitar to trace a template for the cake. Once the cake was baked and cooled I inverted it and then used the template to cut it out. I pieced the cake together and the put a thin layer of icing on it to seal the crumbs. Then I had fun decorating it. I frosted it all white except the fret board. Then I used a purple spray mist to get a swirl effect. I used black icing for the fret bar and the sound hole. Then I added the pick guard with a stencil and spraying it twice with the purple mist. The last ting I did was add the white strings, flower candy, tunning knobs, and add Ashlyn's name. I think it came out pretty good. Ashlyn loved it and that's all that matters.
