My best friends parents anniversary is coming up- 40 yrs. And she wants me to make a cake. She really has her heart set on chocolate fondant with red accents. Does anyone have a pic of something like that? I am worried the contrast between the 2 wont be enough and the red will sort of blend in. I am trying to steer her to just white or ivory with red, but if somebody here has a pic of choc/red I would love to see it! I was looking in the galleries and not finding anything.
Here's a cake I did with red fondant, trimmed in chocolate... and you're right, there's not a lot of contrast. You might go with a milk chocolate and a brighter red, or try adding a touch of gold to trim your red in or something. Do chocolate fondate and then use ribbon bottom borders with a red ribbon over a gold ribbon, then have red roses or another type of flower, tipped in gold or something.... ? Just a thought!
