Silver and Navy Blue Wedding Cake

This cake had silver chocolate fondant bands and navy blue piping. I added a white gumpaste flower with a silver medallion center made from a jewelry mold.

I painted the silver onto the bands using the same technique that I did to paint the gold in this blog post. It was a messy process...I'd recommend that you put the bands on first then paint them if you plan on doing this. Painting them first made it difficult to get them on the cake without stretching them. Plus, if you touch them while you're putting them on the cake the color comes off.
