Thank you to all of you, I had that same tought of the flavor changing due to all that food coloring, not to mention that I wouldn't like all my guests to have red/black tounges, teeth, mouth etc. LOL.
Im very sorry, I wasn't clear on the tiers I'm making two 2 tier cakes (one batman and the other spiderman theme) I'm terrible at calculating sizes/servings
Do you think both cakes with a 6" and 8" will do? If not I can always bake some cupcakes I just dont want anyone left behind ...
and Since I do have to cover the complete cake in Black and the other in red I'm defintely buying the fondant .. I will probably only be making the yellow fondant for the details.
