I've been looking around and so has she but she hasn't found anything.
I've been decorating a short time so i'm lost for ideas.
this is what she wrote to me.
Bllack and white checkerboard fondant and red flowers. Probably carnations and roses, maybe some baby's breath. I don't know. Do you work with fresh flowers? If not, I could add them on myself after I get the cake. I've been trying to find a picture to match what I'm thinking of, but so far no luck.
There is a photo in the gallery that i can't find. It's the one they have on the first page for the quinciaÃ±era gallery.
Thank you i really appreciate it!!!!!
Does anyone know how i would do the checkers??
Do i cover in white and then do the squares one by one??
Thats what it looks like to me. All white fondant with black shapes applied after. Anyone else?
It looks like only the black is fondant. BTW, look into buying fondant or satin ice that is already black. Black is hard work!
I agree with twooten....buy your black. Its a nightmare to make.
and be careful about letting her put the flowers on- that could make for a disaster.
I've done two chessboard cakes. I covered in white and then measured the surface of the cake and then cut out black squares using a ruler.
I just posted my pics.
do the base in white, then cut out white squares using fondant square blocks and replace with black blocks - have a look at cake done called "chessboad" on display
