Fender Guitar Cake


I made this cake for the son of one of my best friends. He was premature, born at 25 weeks, and yesterday was his fourth birthday. He wasn't expected to survive, but he did. So, a big Happy Birthday to you!!!

I've made cakes before, but never one like this. Sure, it's not to scale and the guitar strings aren't straight...but still, I'm pretty proud of it. :) And, I think, if I did it again, it would only get better.

So enjoy a little fun cake today, and wish this little boy well for suriviving against the odds, and for knowing how much he is loved.

Thanks, all! :) I'm pretty proud of how this cake turned out. It was a lot of fun trying to piece it together - like a puzzle. :)

He LOVED the cake! I wish I had a picture when he first saw it. His eyes went wide and his mouth fell open, and then he said "WHOA! That's a guitar! Thank you Auntie Tabitha!" It was just so cute, I had to give him a big ol' hug right then. :)

Thanks! :) It was really fun to make, and even more fun to give it to the birthday boy. :)

Very cool idea :-) And so happy he beat the odds!

Thanks! And I'm really happy about that too. My friend has wanted kids her whole life. If she'd lost him, she'd have been crushed. And I'd have been crushed with her.

So each birthday is a double helping of celebration and thankfulness for life's little gifts. :)
