A Guitar Hero Theme Birthday Cake

August17

I made this birthday cake for a friend’s son.  This two tier chocolate cake was covered in American buttercream, then Satin Ice black fondant (Vanilla flavored).  The decorations were hand painted gumpaste (also Satin Ice brand) and the “notes” were made of fondant.  I really can’t say enough good things about Satin Ice.  It is great to work with, has a pleasant flavor, and held up to a 45 minute car ride beautifully.  I’m done using Wilton products, which are so far below the quality of Satin Ice.  Never again!

Another blurry decoration.  Meh.

There should have been a gumpaste ribbon around the bottom tier painted to look like the frets in the game, but it fell and broke thanks to a surprise gust of wind as I was loading the cake in the car for  transport to the party.  I was just so  happy the cake was only dented and not completely ruined, I hardly noticed it was missing.  Live and learn, I suppose!
