A friend of mine owns an art gallery and she asked me to make a cake for her 1 year anniversary party. She didn't give me any design ideas, but her colors are black, red and gold. The gallery has an uptown, city feel to it. The cake needs to feed around 100-150 or so. My mind is spinning with this one, an art gallery!... the designs are endless! I am excited about making this cake, I think it's going be fun, but I'm really new at this so I would love any design and flavor ideas from some other CCers. Thanks!

You could do a topsey turvey cake in those colors. Make it basic and bold. There is a great article on here on how to make one. I'm going to try it in a couple weeks for a birthday cake. Good luck. I would love to see a picture when you're done.

Thanks for the idea. I looked up the instructions on the topsey turvey cake, but I don't have all the size pans needed and I don't have the $$ to go by them right now for one cake icon_sad.gif But I would love to try one sometime. Thanks again for the suggestion.

what about doing a mosaic.
What about a tiered all white with black fondant and red fondant accents, circle and diamonds or retro circles.
What about all black and white tiered with blood red roses on top.Simple yet very dramatic.
GOOD LUCK! HOPE YOUR "CRITIQUE" IS GOOD!

Thanks for all the great ideas! This gives me more to work with. I've been playing with some ideas, the name of the place is "Enchante" (french) what about a Moulin Rouge type theme?? Yes/No??
