Hi, I'm hoping you all can help. I have been asked to make a goth cake for a 15yr olds birthday except the only things the customer asked for was black icing and maybe some red. I really am stumped and dont know what to do. Any ideas anyone? Thank you.

Black and red for sure! Black and white stripes, silver rivets or studs, skulls... Do a "goth" search on the internet, and you'll come up w/ something! I know Ace of Cakes did one on one of their episodes, maybe you can find it on their website. Sounds like fun - you can do all kinds of stuff!

You could also check out cakes around the Nightmare Before Christmas themes and borrow ideas from those cakes. I've seen some really cool one when I put "Nightmare Before Christmas Cakes" into Google and clicked on the first items "Image results for..."

Check them out.

I have a goth birthday cake in my photos for my 15 year old daughter. It was a coffin with roses.

Black Fondant covered cake with white skulls around the bottom with a skull and crossbone outlined in silver dragees on the top. Red diamonds around it.

There is actually a few on CC if you do a search here. I have had one and even put a silver dragee in the mouth for a pierced tongue. I have another one I have to do with the theme Ozzy Osbourne and goth. I actually picked up some skull push molds. Will always need them for halloween later.

Black , red, silver, gold, even deep purple are all good colors for goth.

If you live near a major shopping mall see if they have a store called Hot Topic. Lots of good goth material for you there.
