So here is the recipe I used for my brothers guitar cake below. The only adjustment I made was doubling the amount of Oreo’s it originally said to use and using chocolate filled Oreo. I had to make three or four batches to construct the guitar shape. It was extremely fun making it and very rewarding afterwards to see all of his friends in shock when we came in with the cake and sparks shooting up from the firework-like candles! I found this delicious recipe; take a look yourself!

Ingredients:

  • 226g of Stork
  • 266g of caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 20 crushed chocolate crรจme Oreo cookies
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 270g of ย self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of milk

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degree’s (fan assisted)
  2. Beat the stork in a baking bowl until light and fluffy
  3. Add sugar and vanilla essence to butter and beat together until well mixed
  4. Add eggs, one at a time and mix until mixture has doubled in size
  5. Add flour and salt and mix thoroughly
  6. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then add in the milk
  7. Mix again until all ingredients are well incorporated
  8. Add in your 8 crushed Oreo cookies
  9. Pour mixture into your pre-greased baking tin
  10. ย Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Sponge is ready when a skewer inserted in to the mixture comes out clean with no bits attached
  11. Once removed from oven, leave it to cool for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
