Hi Nancy, my son graduates in May from high school and I wanted to make his cake in the shape of an electric guitar. I’ve never used fondant but I think that would make it look the best. Just wanted to get your creative tips for this product. Thanks Bunches.

Wilton makes an Electric Guitar Cake pan that would be perfect for your project. This project shows how decorate the cake with buttercream icing, but the guitar could easily be covered with fondant as well. Just crumb coat the baked cake before smoothing on your fondant. Rock on!
