Namita's Piano & Guitar Cupcakes

Namit's turned 11 and celebrated with piano and guitar themed birthday party. She was very clear that she didn't want anything too girly and definitely no pink! When her mom Sonie, my coworker, gave me free range to come up with something on my own the first thing I thought of was using the designs that I had seen a Flight of the Conchords poster that was designed by Dan Kuhlken & Nathan Goldman of DKNG studio for HBO. It was kismet!
The amplifiers, speakers, guitars, pianos, and other musical equipment were made from gum paste that I dried out completely over the course of a week. I then hand painted each decoration using liquid food coloring that was mixed with vodka and left to dry for two days.
