I am making a wedding cake and it will be 3 tiers. The bride wants chocolate dripping down each tier. How do I accomplish this? Also what colors can you use to make Sangria? Thank you in advanced!!

I would use one of the plastic squirt bottles. I seen them in the craft stores and the cake supply store has them with the chocolate making items. Not positive about the sangria but I would use red brown and purple.

on the wilton site, someone says to use a true dark red and burgandy to make sangria. Some say it is a burnt red. hth make dark red buttercream and then add burgandy until it looks sorta brownish.

I am also interested in the tutorial. I went to the site you suggested and it was great! But I could not find the tutorial you were talking about. Would you mind sending the link? I would love to try making a dripping fondant cake! Thank you for you reply and your time!

If she didn't necessarily want it only on the edges I have done it like this (ignore the bad cake...lol I am still a beginner icon_wink.gif

I just poured the ganache in the center and then used my knife to force it over the edges. Then stacked the next tier and repeated.
