Black buttercream or black fondant on a wedding cake.

Love this design.  A quilted black fondant with white sugar pearls.   Black is so beautiful on a white cake but you never want to use black buttercream, not only a bitter taste but will stain everything and I do mean everything.  It is fine for small accents hear and there but not for covering an entire cake.

Lasso style ropes made of sugar for this Western themed wedding cake

This little cake had more than one style of twist..... 
The family wanted to create a western theme cake for this couple with all the bells & whistles or in this case the boots, hats, horseshoes and ropes.   the swags & borders were made sugar ropes and the other western embellishments were also made of sugar.  The silk flowers were furnished by the family to add a bright country feel and coordinate with the other room decor.  We loved creating this cake with the 1/4 turn effect on the top tier.
