My teen son was into a goth stage and everything had to be black. For his birthday he wanted his favorite chocolate cake but wanted black icing over the entire cake. I went to the craft store and bought professional coloring and the cake was beautiful with as much as I could get the cake entirely black. Unfortunately the kids all went home with black lips, black tongues and the stained fingers.

As a child Mom always knew when I was in the candy because of colored lips & tongue. Brings back memories!

I have done most of my kids' birthday cakes and there have been several that had either black, royal blue or red icing that colored lips, fingers and who knows what else! But the kids love them so it is worth it. Your story also reminds me of my sister who shares my love of licorice! When we were little they had licorice ice cream, which of course was black, at our favorite ice cream shoppe. She always got that and always ended up with a black mouth and usually black all over her clothes too!

Hope you took some pictures of the cake and the kids. I love to read stories on how Moms and Grandmas make special cakes on requests.

Its great that you did that. Everybody goes through phases in their life. Wonder what the parents thought of the black lips, tongues and stained fingers? It must have been a sight.

Wish I would have thought of that when my daughter was going thru her goth stage. Wonderful idea.

Good to know about the staining - I was going to use black icing creating a birthday cake for my grandaughter! Too funny.
