It's a great way to add an extra splash of color while still maintaining a clean and simple look.
By the way, even though this cake looks small (and it was), it was red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. Add a layer of fondant to the whole thing and this was one heavy cake!! It took both of us to carry it!!!
Also, a funny little story while we were setting up this cake: Chad was finishing the placement on this cake, putting on the topper, and taking photos when another couple approached the cake. The man commented "Hey, I know what that is! That's fondue icing!! I saw it on Cake Boss!" The woman immediately piped in with "No! It's cream cheese icing! The lady already said what kind of icing it was!" A few moments of silence later and they both looked at Chad and said, "Well, who's right?" Chad came back with, "Well, you are both correct. There is cream cheese icing, but there's also another icing layer on top of that - and it's actually called fondant icing." The man replies back with "See, I told you it had FONDUE icing on it - I watch Cake Boss, I know all about FONDUE icing!"
OK, so maybe it wasn't the funniest story you've ever heard, but it was the highlight of our delivery day!
