I did this Black & White 50th birthday cake a few weeks ago, but I’ve gotten behind on sharing all of my cake pictures.  Anyway, I only have a couple of pics of this one, but it’s a favorite so I had to share.  It was inspired by this cake.

I am a huge fan of a black and white theme, so this cake was lots of fun for me!  The white is vanilla buttercream only (yeah, no fondant… a shocker for me!).   All of the black is Satin Ice black vanilla fondant.

This cake wasn’t nearly as hard to do as I imagined.  I used a diamond cookie cutter from the Wilton set.  I cut the stripes with my FMM Ribbon Cutter and I hand made all the little black balls (with help from my sweet Sarah).  I used white sugar pearls on the points of the diamonds and I bought jewelry wire to make the curly’s coming out of the top!

And that’s all I’ve got for you on this cake!  Any questions?   This cake was made using it in my vanilla cake recipe!
