I saw a couple of pics at a cake tasting where the cake was iced in half chocolate and half white frosting, basically split down the middle? Does this design have a name? I'm having trouble finding similar cakes in the gallery? Also if you've done this any advice or pics would be greatly appreciated! I want to do it on round cake so I'm trying to figure out how to keep the line clean. Thank
Cristy

I have done something like that. You basically just have to be really careful and create a design that allows you to cover the "seam".

wow that's beautiful. I can't believe you used hanache to boot. That's gutsier than I can be? Did you use amy thing to seperate the sides while you did the base icing or did you just work slowly?

I agree with cakelady77. You have the be careful and patient though. I did myself a cake like that for my birthday, just felt like doing a cake, but what i did was harder... the top tier was pink on the sides, and the top was divided in 4, 2 purple sides facing each other, and 2 blue sides facing each other. I have a pic of it here, if you want to check it out. You can KIND OF see what I mean
