Dave Matthews Band Birthday Cake

My friend Jenna asked me to make a cake for her boyfriend Brian as a surprise. His favorite band is Dave Matthews Band, thus the DMB cake. The cake flavor is strawberry, and the icing is buttercream with fondant on top.

frosting and covering the cake with marble fondant..

One of the cake decorations, I made this guitar to resemble Dave's acoustic guitar. It's made out of cake and buttercream icing, then covered with fondant, and hand painted.

Dave Matthew's "fire dancer" logo.

Sax, Guitar and Violin. Sax and Violin made out of Rice Krispy treats, buttercream, and fondant.

Almost done...

Brian's favorite DMB lyrics

Few more questions...what shiny gold paint did you use for the sax...and how long did it take you to finish it all. My boyfriends bday is coming up and he is a die hard DMB fan. Thank you!

Hi sorry I didn't see this comment! I used petal dust, you mix it with a little water and then paint it on. They make it in all sorts of colors.
