Mike Dirnt Bass Cake by ParadoxAndPlaid Mike Dirnt Bass Cake by ParadoxAndPlaid
I made this for Mikes 38th Birthday.[link]
Since I didn't get to last year I made the cake extra special this year. I tried to keep the scaling pretty close -it's about 23" long- The hardest part was making all the hardware with fondant, like the frets kept cracking and getting the silver coloring to look good was challenging. All good fun though.

I had to cut it up. I'm heart broken

Thanks!
Yeah, I was actually really mad about that,getting the scale right is difficult. I had to make the neck shorter and stubbier than it really would be because I could not carve the cake that long thin- it would just crumble :(- The frets are also way too bulky. I think next time I try this I'll use rice-treats for the neck so it's to scale and still stable.

Holy. Shit.

I want a cake like this so badly. I told my friend a few years ago to make one but she didn't.

Too bad you can't send it to Mike, he'd love it

You should try to make one, it's a lot of fun. I wonder if he'd accept a cake from a random fan.I'd be scared to try.

:iconacanyahelke:
AcanyaHelke Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
Same lol. Though he'd prolly be all WOW that's AWESOME

I should try an make one. How'd you get the guitar shape? Did you have a pan or just cut it later?

:iconparadoxandplaid:
ParadoxAndPlaid Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
I cut it out. I printed out his bass on thick paper and made a template to get the shape right. Same thing for the pick guard. It's sort of cheating, but doing it free-hand takes me too long.

Yeah, I can imagine. And it's totally not cheating, I did that for a sewing project for class. Traced my actual bass for the patterns. XD

Which...eventually I will get pictures of...
