Chalkboard cakes are all the rave right now, they are extremely fashionable in the cake decorating world.

We go through every step from cutting the cake to adding the ganache, covering it in fondant. Then creating the chalkboard effect, painting the cake, and finally creating the food items you see around the cake.
