I had a cake request and for a buttercreme cake with chocolate polka dots and it sounds completely doable but i wanted to know if anyone had done this before or if there was any tips out there for me. thanks a lot!
fondant -- -think fondant....
in particular ...
choco-pan (already chocolate flavored!)
and then use all size of round tips (and don't forget to use the big end too!) and other round cutters to make dots dots and more dots until you've gone "dotty!"
I've had this request several times and the cakes turn out to be soooo cute. I normally do a two tier, a six and eight or eight and ten. I do a lighter chocolate BC to ice the cake then I use a darker chocolate BC to make the polka dots. I use cocoa powder with regular BC to make my chocolate BC.
For the polka dots I use a bigger tip, #12, and just do a couple of different size dots. I also use that size tip and the dark chocolate BC border around the edges.
Yah what Doug said
