Happy Birthday Baby!



This is a fun cake that I did recently for my honey. It's her birthday!! It's all MMF. 8" bottom and 6" top. The inside is vanilla smooth BC. The "L" on top is free handed (she likes my handwriting, who knows why). Its finished off with pure white buttercreme dots. The base is actually a candle holder.


The black is always hard to get and people often fear that it will turn thier teeth. I have a few tips and tricks. First of all always (seriously ALWAYS) use gel "no taste" black. If you have the luck to be able to start with chocolate fondant or MMF it really is an advantage. It makes your work easier and saves on the harder to find coloring. The less black coloring you use the better off you are. I have been using "no taste" black on white MMF with no teeth coloring. I think that the blackened teeth is more common with airbrushed cakes.
