Tasteful Tux Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel this cake was fairly simple to do. Using fondant makes this a cake that can be done the night before or day of bc of the simplicity of it. And the colors can be changed to match the bridal colors. I do NOT suggest waiting till the last minute to do the tie if you want it dried in enough time for it to stand up a little. Placing the bow on wax paper of course and place that inside of the bottom of a small bowl letting the bow flow up the sides of the bowl helps give the bow a little lift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Actually an easy to make cake - especially if you use chocolate fondant. It was harder with the poured ganche that I tried. It you try making the lapels with chocolate ganche - like I did - keep it frozen, it peals off the wax paper better than way. It was a great hit for Father's day potluck at church.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I choose a "Tasteful Tux Cake" for my final cake in Wiiton class 4. As you know the class is only 2 hours long, and this cake was quick and easy to prepare and to decorate. I loved the outcome. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instead of fondant, I poured chocolate ganache on the cake and piped on a white bowtie, white buttons and outline (in white) of lapels. So much easier than dealing with fondant!
