Chocolate Birthday Cake - how to decorate?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have been requested to make a chocolate birthday cake and decorate with fondant. I don't want to cover a chocolate cake with fondant as the flavour combination is not great in my opinion, but then I am very limited on ideas of how to decorate the cake for a birthday celebration. The cake is for a man's 30th birthday and I am really unsure of how to decorate the cake.

 

Any ideas or tips would be really helpful.

i always resort to scrolls for a guy if there no other direction--you can make some awesome scrolls out of fondant--

 

or stripes

 

or a combination

 

you could put a big 30 on top

 

you could make scroll-a-ramas around '30's

 

no no no no no-i got it--put a cool big 30 on top--bevel it up--not standing and just start winding scrolls all around & down from there going every which way

 

i love it lol

If you would like an alternative to fondant that you can suggest to your customer you might want to consider a chocolate collar.
If they definitely want fondant but don't have any thoughts on what they want for decoration, stripes and/or polka dots are always easy. icon_smile.gif
