I know, I know, nobody ever makes piano cake anymore.  Mostly because it doesn't exist,  at least not as a distinct Platonic ideal.  But that never stopped us before, here at instructables.com. 
Now, it's worth asking, isn't this actually a recipe?  I mean, making cake and all -- you eat it, right?  To which I reply: It's only a recipe if I tell you what to put in it or how to cook it.  This instructable is really a Play-With-Your-Foody, design-oriented endeavor.  Quite edible indeed, but the key (har har) is achieving the appearance and design of a piano.  I shall leave the baking and the caking as an exercise for the reader.

Step 1: Materials needed

- 1 rectangular (or square) cake or the ingredients&equipment to make one
- 1 pack of Keebler Fudge Sticks or knockoffs thereof
- 1 fine-tipped tube of black icing
- White buttercream frosting or the ingredients&equipment to make it
- Potentially 1 long knife (useful for any frustrating instructable, actually)

i think you can make the rectangular shape from something else,maybe using Oreo biscuit which is darker?
Naturally, that just takes more work. Part of what inspired this instructable was that the Fudge Sticks were already the perfect shape!
