This tuxedo cake was for one of the member's at the country club where I work, 80th birthday. Men's cakes are always hard to decorate, usually they don't care about the decoration they just want to get into eating the cake. Probably no exception here, but I had fun decorating it to look like a tuxedo just the same.

I have also found that most men like chocolate the best and that is the main flavor of this cake. Chocolate cake, a layer of crunch, chocolate buttercream and espresso chocolate mousse.

I used fondant for all the decoration. I had pure black fondant but I added some white to it to make it a dark grey. The problem with black fondant is it can turn your teeth and tongue black. Great for Halloween but not at an elegant dinner party.
