Hi,

I have a black wedding cake coming up in a few weeks. I thought I had it all sorted but just as I was falling asleep last night I thought of a problem (grr took me for ever to fall asleep after that).

The top layer is going to be a tilted 4" fake cube resting on a ball. The problem is under to foam will be visible and bright white on a black cake.

I'm thinking that I should cover the bottom of the block with fondant as well.

Has anybody done had this before?

Any other ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks

It's foam, yes?  And not making any contact with anything edible, correct? Can't you just paint it?

Yes it will be a foam cube. One edge will be resting on the cake and then resting on the ball.

APainting would work, or if you wanted to go the fondant route, you could get some CMC Fondant Stabilizer and mix a little of the powder with water to make fondant glue. It really helps the fondant stick to non-edible surfaces.

Thanks I'll see if I can find that. My small town in Australia is not big on supplies. :(

CMC is tylose powder. It's easily ordered at any cake decorating supply place. I've had supplies arrive at my house in small town Australia 24 hours after having ordered them.
