Ok… so… that was a terrible attempt at a joke… or something…

Anyhow, Wendy at work asked if I could make her daughter’s birthday cake. She wanted a Minnie Mouse cake and I knew exactly what I wanted to make!

I wanted to put together a sort of deconstructed Minnie cake. That sounds… more morbid than it really is haha.
It was actually really adorable.

For my black fondant this time, I added a bunch of cocoa powder before adding any food color… and guess what?! I was told it was actually edible!!

I even did a tiny little “smash cake” for the birthday girl.

It’s really all so cute I can hardly stand it.

    Love it! That’s such a good idea for black fondant/frosting. It seems like I have to add a whole jar of black wilton gel, and it STILL looks purple!

      YES, and though my americolors promised to work better, I STILL hated making black. I would just start dumping in blue and red and brown also to try to just make it as dark as possible, but by the end it was totally inedible… This was pretty awesome. I just dumped cocoa powder in until it was dark brown and then added a bit of black food color.
