This piano cake is a surprise for a cousin....

I made 2 - 9"x 13" spice cakes. I used Betty Crocker boxed cake mixes and baked according to package directions.

I let them cool completely. Then I drew a pattern on paper to look like a grand piano. I cut both cakes the same. I iced between the layers with buttercream icing, then stacked the 2 layers.

I put a base of buttercream on, it was hard because the cake kept crumbling, so I left the top of the piano smooth and used a star tip and went around the sides and covered it completely.

Then I used a small round tip and colored some icing green and wrote Happy Birthday Bryan on top.

I stuck 6 spiral green candles to represent candelabras, 3 on each side of the piano.

I used the same tip and green icing to make music notes all around the side of the cake as well.

I used candy cigarettes for the white notes and black licorice for the black notes. I broke the candy to fit and cut the licorice.

I also used a small piece of card stock and drew music and folded down the middle and stuck on top of the piano.

That is a beautiful cake and I have to give you a ten for that. I might try to do one and use fondant I'm sure it won't look as good as yours but when I do it I will send it in also. What good ideas you come up with. You are a genius..Nancy from Rialto, CA
