I'm making a friend's wedding cake in a couple weeks and I thought I'd play with fondant. The little cake is white cake with buttercream filling and fondant icing. The piping is coloured chocolate buttercream. The larger cake is a fake 8 inch with fondant and the top is a white cake with buttercream filling and fondant icing. I had ribbon around and used white buttercream piping. To pipe the buttercream I used freezer bags and cut a tip from the corner.  When I make the wedding cake I'll use a proper piping back.  Practice makes perfect, so the actual cake should look fab!

the side

the top

the little version, wanted to see if I could get a true black, even with starting with chocolate buttercream to pipe, it still looks metallic

c&c always welcome

Excellent job, it looks great! Cheesy Could I suggest playing around with royal icing instead of buttercream for the piping? Royal dries out more, so there's never the worry of the piping melting off or getting ruined if the cake is bumped.  Smiley Good luck!

It looks like. A fondant is the basics of all cakes presentations. But I used to play it in wedding anniversaries. It is fun and I do love it.
