I thought it would be fun to make the frosting look like a chocolate ganache, so I colored it with some darker brown tones and added some Glossy Accents to it to make it shine. I also added Glossy Accents to the cake stand.
I did a little something different with the sentiment too. Have you ever embossed with white on black cardstock and found that you are having a hard time getting every little white fleck of the embossing powder off? (And yes, I do use an anti-static pad before embossing.) Well, I thought I'd try using my Minc machine with Opaque white foil, and it did absolutely beautifully!!! No stray flecks!! All you have to do is stamp your sentiment on copy paper, run it through a copier with toner, add your white foil and run it through the machine. Perfection, I tell ya!!
Here's a close up so you can see the shine better, as well as the beautifully "Minc'd" sentiment.
