Guitar Hero Groomsman's Cake

Guitar Hero Cake
I outlined the Guitar Hero guitar onto sturdy paper. As it was a groomsmans cake at my nephew's wedding, it had to be big. I used my 16x2 inch round wedding cake pan and it took 5 cakes mixes to fill. Once the cake was cooled and leveled, I laid my pattern on top to cut around and had to cut the arm of the guitar in 2 or 3 pieces so not to waste cake. I "glued" the pieces back together with frosting.
Flames were drawn on top of the paper pattern of the guitar to be used as an additional pattern later in the decorating.
Once the cake was assembled on a serving board, I covered the entire cake with white fondant. Fondant is easier to roll if slightly warmed so I put mine in the microwave for 5 or 6 seconds and my roller is the marble type rolling pin - sooo much easier!
I "painted" black food coloring onto the arm of the guitar. I then cut the guitar body flame pattern out of the original guitar pattern and traced the flames onto a piece of fondant and then cut it out. I sprayed the fondant "flames" with the areosol yellow food coloring and then used areosol red coloring around the edges. The wammy bar was made by cutting angle edges on a 2" length and 4" length of a sm glue stick and gluing them together with hot glue and then covering w/foil. I added the black fondant to the end to complete it. Fondant pieces were mixed w/color and shapes cut out and placed on the cake. Flames were cut out of white fondant and sprayed yellow and edged w/red - these were used as an accent.
