Fun & Fabulous Black & White Cake
(Las Vegas, NV)
Coolest Black & White Cake
When my son was younger, he loved superhero parties, but he just turned 17 and he wanted something a bit more grown up for his birthday party, especially since he was having a girl he’s interested in as a guest at the party. We came up with the idea for an elegant black and white party that allowed all the guests to dress up a bit for the event. Once we decided on the theme, I went looking for some helpful black and white party ideas to help me pull off this party.
Although my son wanted a party that was a bit more grown up, I wanted to keep it fun and avoid making it stuffy for the teenage guests. I used black and white decorations that had a modern edge to them while avoiding tacky decorations that could make the party area look like a badly decorated prom. My son chose some classy invitations and we included the fact that this was a dressy party so all the guests were aware.
As I looked through black and white party ideas, I found plenty of help but nothing about a good cake idea. Stumped for good ideas, I decided to create one of my own that went along with the theme and so this cake was created. I used a basic chocolate cake, chocolate icing and then used white chocolate and regular chocolate malt balls to create the top of the cake. The teens loved it, so I guess it was a success.
