Mini chocolate cake tips?
EDIT: I meant to post this in the cakes section, but accidently missed. Could a moderater please move it, if possible?
I want to make my boyfriend a chocolate cake for valentine's day, but I don't have all that much experience with cake-baking.
He already knows that I'm going to make him a small chocolate cake, so I wanted the surprise to be how nice it looks. I was thinking of making a basic chocolate cake, putting fondant frosting on it, and then decorating it very delicately.
Since I'm only making one cake, I don't want to have to go out and buy a bunch of new stuff to decorate it with. Can I buy just a tiny tube of white icing? Where? How about little chocolate garnishes?
I want it to turn out really well, so I'd appreciate all the advice on cake baking and decorating that I can get.
