  • Welcome to How To Cook That, I'm Ann Reardon and today we are making a guitar cake.

  • A couple of weeks ago I asked you what your favourite bands/ artists were - and we have

  • collated all of those comments, there were so many, and we'll be counting them down throughout

  • this video and we'll also add those bands to the cake later on too.

  • Let me know in the comments if your favourite one made the cut.

  • First thing you'll need to do is print out the template, you can get that and all the

  • recipe quantities and sizes on the howtocookthat.net website, I'll link to that below.

  • Once you've printed it, cut it out and line up the 'join here' marks and then just tape

  • that together.

  • Now we want to make the frets out of fondant so they have time to dry out.

  • I am using a fondant extruder for this, you could roll them by hand but they are so long

  • it would be very tricky to get them this perfect.

  • Once they are on the board use a cutting board or ruler to something just to straighten them

  • up.

  • Now for the strings I am doing the same thing but using a different disk on the extruder

  • so you get finer snakes.

  • Then line those up so they are exactly straight.

  • As I said, I am making these the day before I so they can dry out, if you're doing it

  • on the same day as you're making the cake you might need to add some tylose powder to

  • the fondant to make it dry out quicker.

  • The artist that came in at number 10 according to your votes was BEYONCE.

  • On the template you'll see each bands logo, you'll need to print those with edible ink

  • on rice paper, there are lots of cake places online that can print them for you if you

  • just send them the A4 sheet.

  • Then cut them out so they look like stickers that we can add to the guitar.

  • For the cake you need sugar, flour, margarine, dark chocolate, baking powder, cocoa powder

  • and eggs.

  • Add the cocoa powder to the flour and then add in the baking powder and whisk those together

  • this just aerates and it also gets rid of any lumps, we especially don't want any lumps

  • of cocoa powder in there.

  • Add the chocolate to the margarine and melt them together in the microwave.

  • Once they're melted just use a whisk to whisk them together so that the margarine is combined

  • with the chocolate.

  • Pour that chocolate mixture into a big bowl and add in the sugar and the eggs.

  • And yes, this is a lot of ingredients because it is a big cake.

  • Turn it on the whisk, it's no problem to whisk this by hand if you don't have a mixer, just

  • use some muscles and mix it together.

  • Put it on low speed and add in your flour, cocoa powder and baking powder mixture.

  • Now at number 9 on the chart you voted for Queen.

  • Even years after the death of lead singer Freddy Mercury, their epic anthems are still

  • party favourites from 'Bohemian Rhapsody' right through toDon’t stop me now’.

  • Keep whisking that until that is just combined and you can't see any more flour.

  • Then tip that into some baking trays.

  • You want to bake it in three trays, now I can only bake two at once in my oven, so I'll

  • bake the third tray once the first two are done.

  • This cake is so long that it is not going to fit in the fridge.

  • So what I'm going to do is cut a cake board that fits just the body of the guitar.

  • That way we can put that end in the fridge before we cover it in fondant.

  • For the neck we want to make a mold so that we can make that bit out of solid chocolate.

  • Take some core flute board and make an indent along the edges of the neck, don't cut all

  • the way through you just want to make an indent there.

  • Then leave a wider border and cut out a rectangle around that.

  • Then cut out a square from each corner.

  • At number 8 you voted for SIA the first of the Aussie artists on the list, I actually

  • saw her perform recently at a Google event in New York.

  • Fold up the edges of your boxes along the line that you made.

  • Because the indent is there you will find it easier to get a nice straight line.

  • Tape it together at the corners to make a box.

  • Now you want to do that same thing for the head of the guitar, and one more littler box,

  • I'll put the size of that box on the template.

  • Melt some chocolate and then temper it, and I have a video explaining how and why to temper

  • the chocolate.

  • If you search for 'Reardon chocolate secrets' you'll find it.

  • Once that is done, pour the tempered chocolate into each mold and then tap it on the bench

  • to smooth it out on the top.

  • With the smallest box you need to tilt it to one side and support it there so that the

  • chocolate sets on an angle.

  • Roll out some black fondant and cut out the shape of the bridge.

  • Now at number 7 we have PENTATONIX an a cappella group from Texas.

  • They won NBC's The Sing Off back in 2011 and are still going strong on their YouTube channel.

  • Then we want to cut an extra strip of black and place it over the top and trim it to the

  • right size.

  • Then cut a strip of white for the saddle and add that into place in the centre.

  • Then use your template to make indents where the strings go.

  • Now for the top of the tuners, find something that is round I am using a piping coupler

  • and cut out a circle of black fondant.

  • When making easy fondant details I always like to make more than I need so I can choose

  • the best ones at the end.

  • Roll a snake of black then cut short strips.

  • Roll it between your thumb and finger just to round it out again.

  • When you cut it with your knife it tends to get a bit flattened.

  • Then using a little water add them to the centre of each of the discs.

  • For the underneath of the tuning mechanism cut out a piece of black in the shape shown.

  • At number 6 you voted for Taylor Swift, it looks like Tay Tay will never go out of style.

  • If you're a Swifty make sure you also watch the Blank Space Heart Cake after this one,

  • I'll link to it at the end.

  • Use a piping tip to make an indent at the top and the bottom and then indent a line

  • across and another going across that so it looks like the top of a screw.

  • Cut another circle of black and squash it slightly then flatten it on each side giving

  • it the shape of the tuning pegs.

  • Now using a little water join the base plate and the peg together using a snake of fondant.

  • Take some gold luster dust and brush it all over the black pieces.

  • At number 5 you voted for the British Boy band ONE DIRECTION.

  • For those of you devoted 1D fans you'll also love the surprise inside 1D cake and I'll

  • link to that at the end too.

  • For between the layers of the cake I am going to use my basic buttercream recipe flavoured

  • with some vanilla.

  • And the recipe for that is on my website.

  • Once your cakes are cooled and leveled cut out the guitar shape using your template.

  • And then add some buttercream to the cake board so the cake doesn't slip around.

  • Then slide the first layer of cake on top of the board.

  • Cover that in a thin layer of jam and then a layer of buttercream over the top, trying

  • to get it as level as you can.

  • And then add your next layer of cake, now if you just pull the baking paper around under

  • the tray it allows the cake to slide off and you can easily position it where you want

  • it, so that it's lined up with the other cake.

  • Add the jam, buttercream and next layer of cake and then cover that whole thing in buttercream

  • all the way around the edges, trying to get it as smooth as possible.

  • And then if you have any buttercream that is sticking up just push it in towards the

  • middle, then you want to put that in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

  • Now the chocolate is set you can cut the tape at the corners and take it out of the container.

  • AT number 4 you voted for 5 SECONDS OF SUMMER, another Australian band, they got their start

  • right here on YouTube.

  • For the head of the guitar place the template over the top and shape it a little so that

  • it is not completely flat.

  • It kind of curves in at the top there.

  • Now we want to join the head to the neck and it's not flat, it goes at an angle.

  • So check the template to see how it should sit and trim the chocolate at the join if

  • you need to.

  • Take some more chocolate and add it to the join, push them together and support it while

  • you wait for it to set.

  • Just double check your angle is right and smooth off any excess from the join.

  • At the other end add the piece of chocolate from the smaller box.

  • And add a little curve of chocolate at the join.

  • Now measure the height of that piece and cut a cake pop stick to the same height.

  • Make a little hole in the neck and using some chocolate add the cake pop stick into place

  • for support.

  • Now you want to position the body of the guitar on one end of a long cake board, making sure

  • it's straight.

  • Then cover that whole thing in white fondant.

  • And on the edges, just lift and lower, lift and lower, so that yo can smooth it down all

  • the way around the edges.

  • At number 3 comes Panic! at the disco This band has been through so many changes - on

  • the latest album everything was written and recorded by the only remaining member Brendan

  • Urie - let me know do you like the old stuff better than the new stuff?

  • Cut the excess fondant from around the base.

  • For the parts that are curved I find it easier to use a spoon instead of a knife because

  • it's just the right shape.

  • Now the corners here you can see are rounded and you want them to be a bit more sharp.

  • So to do that, put something flat on top and gently push up with your finger and the palm

  • of your hand, pinching it upwards.

  • Do the same towards the side and you can see already that that's becoming sharper.

  • A fondant smoother is really helpful when you're doing this and it takes a bit of time

  • to go the whole way around so don't try and rush this, just do it slowly and carefully

  • until it looks nice and sharp.

  • Now roll out some more white fondant and add it to the top of the head of the guitar so

  • that we can make it match the body in the colour.

  • Now to turn it into wood look I am using brown gel colour, a little bit of black, yellow

  • and orange.

  • And then I am adding a bit of vodka.

  • Now we are going to just get the brush and put that on in long brush strokes from top

  • to bottom.

  • Now the alcohol in this is just going to evaporate off, so there won't be any alcohol left, but

  • the reason we're using the alcohol is because it evaporates off it's not going to make your

  • fondant soggy.

  • Take some more of your colour and make it a bit deeper towards the edges so it looks

  • a little bit better.

  • Then do the same with the sides, just brushing on the colour.
