Black Piping Cake

Has anyone had a cake with Black Piping on it? I thought about having 2 of the 4 tiers with black piping, but my mom brought up the point that everyone might end up with black mouths! That would be Horrible!!! Any suggestions or past experiances?

We're doing black fondant acecnts on ours.  We originally wanted an all black cake but both bakers we talked to warned us of the black mouths and more importantly, potential black stains on your wedding gown.


We were told that black fondant "accents" would be ok because people could pick them off.


HTH!

The cake at my shower had tons of black icing.  When I saw it, I immediately thought, "oh no, we're all gonna have black mouths".  But, none of us actually did, so I'd say go for the black piping.

I would have never thought of that, but I think you should be cool as long as the black is just accented like your picture.

Awesome... I was thinking since its buttercream that it would be more white than black...making grey so not staining the mouth!


Thanks Girls!

I had an engagment cake with black on it- and it barely made some of our teeth black- nearly not as much as I had thought...


We are having some black piping on our wedding cake now too- I thought each guest gets a sliver- how much of the icing and 'black' piping are they actually going to eat???  you know?  So I went for it...  Were doing every-other tier with black piping- the other 2 just black ribbon- PIB!


- HMM :)
