  • Yellow and pink fondant for the flowers
  • Black piping gel or icing for the whiskers


  • Rolling pin
  • Fondant cutters for flowers and leaves

  1. Bake and Stack Your Cake: Prepare your cake layers, let them cool, and then stack them with your favorite filling.
  2. Cover with White Fondant: Roll out white fondant to cover the cake smoothly, using a

cake smoother for an even finish. Trim any excess fondant from the bottom.

  1. Create the Black Cat:
    • Roll out black fondant and cut a large circle for the cat’s face and two triangles for the ears.
    • Attach the face and ears to the top of the cake, using a little water or edible glue if needed.
  2. Form the Facial Features:
    • For the eyes and nose, use small amounts of fondant and shape them accordingly. Attach these pieces to the cat’s face.
    • Insert thin pieces of spaghetti into the fondant face for the whiskers, and carefully paint them black with edible food paint or piping gel.
  3. Craft the Flowers:
    • Roll out the yellow and pink fondant and use flower cutters to create various sizes of flowers. Add a small ball of fondant to the centers for depth.
    • Thinly roll out green fondant for the leaves, and use a knife or leaf cutter to create leaf shapes.
  4. Decorate with Flowers:
    • Arrange the fondant flowers and leaves around the base of the cake and on top, securing them with a dab of edible glue.
    • For added detail, paint the center of the flowers with a small brush and a touch of edible pink dust.
  5. Final Touches:
    • Add small white fondant balls to mimic a collar around the cat’s neck and place additional flowers and leaves to fill any gaps and create a balanced look.

Baker’s Tips:

  • When working with black fondant, wear gloves to avoid staining your hands.
  • Make sure the fondant flowers are dry before painting to prevent them from getting soggy.
  • If the spaghetti whiskers sag, let them dry after painting before placing them onto the cake.

Conclusion: This black cat-themed cake is a delightful blend of sophistication and whimsy. It requires time and patience, but the end result is a stunning cake that’s sure to impress. Gather your baking tools, unleash your creativity, and create a masterpiece that’s as unique as it is delicious. Happy baking!
