Cakelele - Ukulele Cake




1 Ukulele (guitar) pan mold

1 cake recipe

1 recipe of butter cream icing

Various icing colors

Lots of time and patience





I baked the cake off and after it was cool I put on a crumb coat (very thin layer of icing).







And then the fun began, I blended the two wood grain colors, then moved to the fret board and the bridge, the sound hole and finally the strings. For the first take on this it's not so bad.
