Square, Black Wedding Cake With Silk Flowers

 Square, Black Wedding Cake With Silk Flowers  on Cake Central

I had a bride who wanted to match a Ben-Israel cake she saw on tv. This is black buttercream with silk flowers. Bottom and top tiers are styrofoam. Note: Take and awl or screwdriver with you (and duct tape) if you need to insert flowers into Styrofoam. I think this cake is simply gorgeous.

It is absolutely beautiful but I must say the first thing that came to mind was all those wedding guests walking around with black tongues! lol

wow....gorgeous but I have to agree with crp7....the first thing I thought too was all the guests and bride and groom with black mouths!!!

Don't think I didn't have a black tongue for few days too! And let's just say that all that black coloring "comes out" a little weird on the other end!

This cake is absolutely gorgeous! But I was told by my decorating instructor that black Icing in abundance is kind of a No No because it causes issues when coming out the other end. Did anyone (Guests etc. ) have this problem? The cake really is Stunning!! 8)

How I get black buttercream: I use Americolor. It is a dark gray when fresh and dries dark black. I used about 3 T. for 2 batches of WIlton white icing
