Superhero/Star Wars Birthday Party & Replica Ibanez Guitar Cake

Whew! What a weekend! There was lots of research, baking, color mixing and decorating going on at Heavenly Bites!  This weekend I had Superhero/Star Wars themed sugar cookies AND a replica of an Ibanez guitar cake due! They were both a lot of fun to make and required lots of research, pictures and prep.

The Superhero/Star Wars cookies were for James - a birthday boy who didn't want to choose between two themes for his party...I wouldn't have wanted to either! Who wants to wait another year so you could have your other theme? I love the combo idea!! :)  So for party favors, I was asked to make sugar cookies keeping both themes in mind...so I made the Superman and Batman logos AND R2-D2 and Yoda cookies! "Yummy, they were!" ;)

Next up was the replica Ibanez Electric Guitar Cake - one of my college roomates wanted to suprise her nephew who just turned 20 with a cake made to look like the guitar he plays in his Philly band. I was so psyched to take on this project! I really love getting a sculpted cake because it becomes so technical and I love working hard to make the cake look exactly like the real object. I did a lot of research on the Ibanez website to get a good picture of the guitar in the same color combination as the picture they sent me of and made a large blown up version of the cake on paper so I could be sure to get the right size cake board and to be sure I got all the measurements right!  I was really psyched with the result!!
