Damask Dejour

Maria's wedding had a black and white theme with a damask pattern.
I tried and tried and tried to figure out how to get a damask pattern on her cake.
I finally decided the best way would be to paint it on. So this is a dark german-chocolate cake with chocolate chips. It had chocolate filling and was covered in fondant. I hand painted the design with a special food coloring.


It took 14 hours plus one catastrophe at 1:30 am in the morning...but it was so worth it! Maria loved it and that's all that mattered.
