You’re a Rock Star Daddy!
Hubby plays the guitar and it was Jackson’s idea to make him a guitar rock star cake. Nothing fancy, just a personalized cake that we can say
Little man # 1 (Jackson) LOVES to help me in the kitchen.

This kid LOVES to bake!
Notice that Little Man #2, Parker Reese, isn’t in any of these photos. Baking? Not so much. Breaking? Yes!
But really I think he enjoys helping me so he can do this. . .
I mean really, who doesn’t like to like the bowl, spoon, etc?
To make this very simple double-layer guitar cake:
(plus a box of cake mix)
We used a box (Yes, a box. I don’t not bake cakes from scratch) of Betty Crocker Devil’s food. I used 2 round cake pans lined with foil for easy removal.
After cooling the cakes (in the pans) on a wire rack, I lifted the cakes out by holding the foil. The foil will peel easily away from the cake. Again, store-bought icing. Place pieces of wax paper under the cake so the cake plate stays clean. Using my
Jackson and I spread chocolate frosting on the top of the first cake. Place the second cake on top (you may need to trim cake to make it flat) and frost the top and sides and then remove the wax paper.
Now you can decorate it however you like! We drew the guitar using canned cupcake icing and some tubes of icing I had in the cabinet. Jackson wanted to add sprinkles and of course the candles. I bought the #3 and #2 only Because both my boys can use them for their birthdays this year. Cool!
Happy birthday John! Hope you like your cake!
