Not so much Air Guitar...

Have been giving a lot of thought over the past few weeks as to how I would produce the cake for her Prince Charming as requested by Mags, for his special birthday.

His party was on Saturday so I spent Thurs afternoon baking and then all day Friday filling, trimming and decorating.

You see aside from Mags and their sons, his most prized possession is his Lowden acoustic guitar which was made for him during the expected arrival of their first born. So Lowden 2 needed to make an appearance.

To say I was pleased with the result is an understatement and the birthday boy was very happy, until he had to cut it.

The only inedible items were the strings (wool) and the cocktail sticks holding the tuning knobs on.

Orders are NOT being taken!


  1. What a perfect cake and what a perfect night! What a perfect friend xx Everyone still talking about Lowden #2!

  2. Glorious Cake. Wish I could have been at that party!!!

  3. That's amazing! Great job, and what a great friend you are :)

  4. Hi Niqi - saw this and thought of you! remember you asking about my sewn camera strap. L x
