I need some ideas. I had a ton of designs but unfortunantly this is for someone who doesn't like fondant. So that makes it really hard for me.
Also, I am afraid to dye icing black, but I would like a dark backround color. Thanks in advance!

I'm thinking masks. Maybe a mask cookie as an accent? Would they agree to fondant accents on a buttercream cake?

I made one & it's in my photos. I used BC and roses. I bought the mask at Party City. I had ordered a white choc mask and it never came in. I will try to look for the posts from where I begged for help on here too. icon_biggrin.gif

I think the cakes which are dyed black with a white phantom face on top look great! I just made a vegas cake which had a middle layer of black icing. I used two entire jars of Wilton black to make it the black I wanted. It was very, very bitter. I put a huge layer of regular buttercream on it and then covered it with a very thin layer of black...just enough to cover it. It didn't taste bad then!

I love the black fondant ideas! You could always also do a red rose with a black ribbon tied around it as a topper too, just an idea!

Here is one I googled...I am not sure if it is buttercream or fondant, but I was thinking a dark chocolate ganache might work too.

The mask can be made out of white chocolate. I bought a plain white face mold at Hobby Lobby and poured white chocolate in it, just coating the area I needed for the mask. Placed it in the freezer for a few minutes then popped the mask out. I trimmed away any rough edges. The Phantom of the Opera cake I made was fondant. I wonder if you could use a very deep brown BC and possibly use a little fondant for trim?

What if you could make a cake with musical notes around the sides, a white chocolate mask as someone else said, and either a real or artificial red rose tied with a black ribbon as the toppers . Maybe a chocolate buttercream base.
Hope this helps.
