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.
