Banjo Cake!

This cake was a very last minute cake for a special surprise! I basically had about 24 hours to design and create this cake! I made this for a co-worker's husband's birthday!

The banjo body is cake covered in fondant, the neck is foam covered in fondant and the head stock is made completely of fondant. Details were hand painted with silver luster dust and piping was done with buttercream.

  1. OM Goodness. I just found you by searching the internet for Banjo Birthday cakes. You did a great job. My son turns 16 later this month and we're having Bluegrass pickin' buddies over one night to celebrate. I plan to make his cake look like a banjo. He is a banjo picker. It won't look this good, but I'll do my best. Thanks for the great pics. I love your blog, so I'm now following.
