I had the privilege yesterday of decorating a cake for a very sweet girl who celebrates her 14th birthday today. Happy birthday M. Her mum had seen a photo of a cake that she loved and so it was re-created using her daughter's favorite colors.
A wooden letter (purchased at Michaels) was painted to match the fondant colors.
Black: I had heard that black fondant could taste a little bitter, especially if made directly from white fondant and adding black dye to it. So after a little research on the Wilton site, I came across this recipe where you use dark cocoa candy melts to color the icing brown before adding the black dye.
Turquoise: The turquoise color was made with basic white fondant and I added a small amount of Sky Blue icing color with the Teal icing color.
Lime Green: The lime green was made by mixing Yellow Lemon and Sky Blue icing colors into the basic white fondant. You need to use more yellow than blue though.
I love the cake and the colors match perfect together… you’re amazing! I can’t believe how fast you’re doing this.. it tooke me a WHILE till I got to be good. Congrats!!
