I'm making a wedding cake for a friend of mine, and this is the cake she picked. I think I can handle it, except for one thing... See how where the black is, it's recessed into the cake? Would I just double cover the top half of those layers with fondant so the top is thicker? Or cut away cake there before I cover it (which seems very risky)? I really have no idea.

Thank you for any advice you can give, I really appreciate it.

I'm wondering if it is cut or if it is more of an optical illusion, since it doesn't have any fondant covering it. It appears to me that the design is over BC.

to me, it looks like there is a layer of white fondant on top of a ribbon of red, on top of a black ribbon on the bottom layer, so three layers of fondant? that would definitely make it stand out farther from the base cake.
