  • 2 1/2 cups vanilla frosting

How to make it

  1. Pop Star Guitar - Step 1

    Cut the cake as shown and assemble.

  2. Make purple frosting by stirring 12 drops of red food coloring and 8 drops of blue into 1 1/4 cups of vanilla frosting. Spread the frosting over the guitar body.

  3. Lightly press a medium-size drinking glass into the frosting to mark the sound hole. Spoon 1/2 cup of the chocolate frosting into a pastry bag with a small round tip. Pipe frosting to fill in the circle. Use the rest of the chocolate frosting to cover the guitar neck and head as shown.

  4. Place one section of the Kit Kat® about 2 1/2 inches below the sound hole. Spoon 1/4 cup of vanilla frosting into a pastry bag. Use the small round tip again to pipe on lines for frets and strings, then place the yellow M&M's® Minis as shown.

  5. For tuning pegs, put three brown M&M's® on each side of the head of the guitar, then pipe vanilla-frosting pegs leading to them.

  6. Stir 12 drops of neon blue food coloring into the remaining vanilla frosting. Spoon the frosting into a pastry bag fitted with the medium round tip. Pipe on dots and curlicues as shown. Serves 10 to 12.
