A friend wants me to make a bride & groom cake using buttercream and fondant accents. She chose chocolate cream cheese frosting for the groom's cake and wants it to look like he is dressed in a gray tux. I tried adding black to the brown frosting today and I'm not excited about putting this on a 3 tiered cake. I made some fondant to match and played around with the design and now I'm wondering if it has any eye-appeal at all. I want people to eat and enjoy the cake. Should I talk to the bride about a different frosting? Have any of you ever added melted white chocolate to cream cheese frosting? I wondered if I tinted that gray if it would look more appealing. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The wedding in June 30th so I'm experimenting this week. Thanks.
