"Gibson Les Paul Guitar Cake" - 7/11

This is a full size Gibson Les Paul Standard guitar I made as a groom's cake.  It measured about 40" long by 14" wide.  The body of the guitar was red velvet cake with cream cheese icing, covered in fondant.  For the sunburst appearance, I used three different colors of luster dust with the base color painted on with a mixture of luster dust and lemon extract.  The neck and head of the guitar are made of rice krispy treats covered in fondant with fondant details.
