Hi guys!

 

I am new to this site and cake decorating...Mainly do cakes for frends and family.. I would like to make a cake for a friend for her birthday this weekend.. she wants a 49er cake and I was thinking about making chocolate fondant since she likes chocolate BUT i wanted to change the colore from brown to possibly burgundy being the 49ers are now a burgundy color. Do you have any ideas on how to acheive that color?

 

Also, i have seen tons of recipes for CMMF but the ones I have seen use cocoa powder does anyone have one using milk chocolate chips?? would that give it a chocolater taste??

 

Trying to make ahead to make the cake this friday or saturday.

 

All advice/recipes is much appreciated!! icon_biggrin.gif

Also I was thinking about using peanut butter frosting with this... would that  be okay to use under the cmmf?

The only color I've changed chocolate fondant to, other than brown is black.  I'm not sure it would be possible to achieve a burgundy color.
