Grooms Cake: Fender Stratocaster in Sunburst

When I met this couple, the idea of doing a guitar cake was at first a thrill. Then we met with the terror of details, accuracy and expectations. We got to work making all the little pieces, and the neck, and when it came time to build the body, we faced our largest challenge: a full size guitar wouldn't fit in our industrial fridge, no matter how you angle it. We built the guitar in two pieces, the body and the neck, and waited for the final assembly until two hours prior to delivery (no pressure!). Below is the final cake and some detail shots highlighting our love and labor week. BTW, we are WAY cooler now because we have a detailed knowledge of a really cool guitar!

Above is a photo of a real Fender we used as inspiration to build the guitar
