I made this for my dad's birthday this year. he is a DIE HARD pink floyd fan so this was perfect for him. his fave album is actually wish you were here but i don't even know how i'd begin to recreate that with fondant haha. it was between this and the wall but i settled for DSOTM because it's a little more interesting.


It's a four layer vanilla cake with blackberry preserves between each layer then covered in buttercream and fondant. The black was such a nightmare to color and i never really got it an even shade but everyone liked the subtle marbled look.

thanks for looking Smiley

Really cool cake. FYI....Satin Ice makes black fondant and I've seen it before at Michaels. I was so happy to find that I would NEVER have to mix black again, I don't even care if it's a bit pricey. And it tastes okay. I think you can also order it online if you search Satin Ice. I've never seen that Wilton makes it, but they may. It would be cheaper.

This cake is amazing!  I agree that the marbled-fondant gives it a really cool look, and the rainbow is so sharp and gorgeous against the black.  (And now I have to dig around on my computer for my mp3s of Dark Side of the Moon...)
