How was the black edge done on this chanel cake? Aldo I dont have a cutter, any other easy to to make the logo?  Maybe a circle cut out?


Lastly, if doing an 8" what size should the rectangular sheet be to have enough space like in the photo?


Thanks :)

AI'm not sure if it's black buttercream / ri or fondant. Using my phone and can't zoom in enough. But I guess it's fondant. Measure your cake pan to find out the length. I use a simple pizza cutter, you'll get in any supermarket. For the logo I'd say - if you cake is 4" high - 3" high and 5" wide.

AOh, and the CC logo I guess is 2,5" or 3". If you use an 8" cake, the top layer would be a 4", right? Means you have about 4" left in front,but you need some space to the top layer and bottom cake border. Use round cutters or if you don't have them, maybe 2 glasses in the right size.

Could it be extruded fondant for the border?
