My daughter requested a violin cake for her birthday. I took photos as I went to show the process.
Cut out your template.
It helps to have a violin that is the same size as your cake pan.
Begin to panic that you have frosted all the violin-y nuance right out of the cake and have made a guitar instead.
Feel proud of your idea to make the neck out of rice crispy treats.
Decorate & add sparkles.
Pro tip: outlining in chocolate makes it look less sloppy!
Realize you have totally made a guitar. Brace yourself for the comments.
Eat some of the neck and decide it doesn’t matter if it’s a violin or a banjo or a mandolin. It’s fricking delish.
