Guitar Fondant Birthday Cake

Friday was my son Zach’s 23rd birthday.  He loves to play guitar and write his own music so Courtney and I decided to make him a guitar birthday cake.  We found the guitar shaped cake pan at Michaels (and did an excited little dance in the aisle).  The cake is the “Gram’s Best Brown Sugar Cake” recipe (with an extra cup of flour added to give it a little firmer texture to hold up all that frosting and fondant) and then Vanilla Buttercream Frosting and the black fondant is Duff’s Buttercream Fondant (also purchased at Michaels).  Courtney piped the guitar strings on with frosting and then put Zach’s initails on the guitar also with frosting.  The red guitar pick is fondant as well as the other guitar parts.  It came out pretty cute!  Happy 23rd Birthday Zach, we love you tons and tons!  🙂
