My friend wants a Louis Vuitton cake for her birthday! Does this chocolate fondant you used taste good? How did you do the logos?

For the logo I made my own stencil. I bought a stencil cutter and blank stencil sheets and followed a pattern. You can either airbrush the pattern, or paint it on with your pearl or color dust. I'm not a big fan of fondant but the chocolate wasn't bad. I like to use my fondant sparingly with more icing underneath. This way it still looks pretty without losing the taste (since some people do t care for fondant).

Beautiful work! Was it difficult to put the stencilled fondant onto the cake? Did the gold rub off on the hands?

Hi! Thank you :) What I did was use the Wilton color spray. I let it set for a few minutes and quickly put it on the cake. It seemed to stay on pretty well for me.
