I had the request for a formal type graduation cake. The colors are to be black and red with white. The girl wants fondant polka dots on it. I'm stuck. Not sure how to make polka dots formal! The cake is supposed to be a 13x19" size. If it were smaller I think I could wing it but I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

I envision black writing and maybe accent dots(?) to the borders.
Keep the polka dots mostly small. What is the school/class flower? Can that that be red? Flowers make a more formal design.

They are not going with school colors. The girl just wants black and red polka dotted cake! But it needs to be formal. The mom wanted white fondant ribbon roses added, too. I would prefer to use icing dots as fondant polka dots seem to bold and so not formal!! icon_cry.gif
