I am working on a guitar cake for my son. It is going to be black with red, yellow and orange flames. He doesn't like buttercream or fondant. Any suggestions for a good frosting recipe that will hold those colors? Anyone know if those colors can be mixed into pastry pride? Thank you icon_smile.gif

You have to define buttercream. Is it the buttercream made with Crisco or a meringue based buttercream made with butter?

Also, you can use fondant and then just peel it off. I've seen quite a few people eat fondant cakes this way.

He said it is way to sweet for him. Can I just cut down on the amount of powder sugar I put in it?

Maybe find a stabilized whipped cream frosting

A little salt would cut the sweetness.
