Thanks for all the suggestions!  Cake Craft Co is close so I've been there a few times.  I agree about the disorganization.  It was overwhelming the first few times.  I've found that if I know what I need I just ask and they point me in the right direction but it isn't good (for me at least) for browsing.  I've been to Happy Hostess House a few times when I've been on that side of town.  I'll have to look for the place in Powell, I drive by there a few times a week!
I came across this cake recipe when I was searching for a S'Mores cake recipe and I have this saved as my default scratch chocolate cake recipe. I'm new to scratch baking and have not run into an issue with how it turns out. http://www.heatherchristo.com/cooks/2011/03/01/smores-cake/Dark Chocolate Cake2 cups boiling water1 cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder1 cup soft unsalted butter2-1/4 cup white sugar4 large eggs1 Tbs vanilla2-3/4 cups AP flour2 tsp baking soda1/2 tsp...
In the recipes section there's a White Velvet Cake recipe. Mild chocolate flavor but very tasty. The recipe calls for white chocolate pudding mix and mocha coffee creamer.I think the Cake Doctor book has a recipe that uses white chocolate as well.
I made a small Tardis for my husband and sister-in-law's birthday. I made several 4" squares and stacked as a rectangle. Instead of making it tall, I laid it out like a long rectangle. I only put detail work into the top side which saved time ($) and made the pieces out of fondant.
What about doing a 2-tone rope boarder? Or different sized dots/beads?
I found this old threadhttp://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&printertopic=1&t=620149&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&vote=viewresultthat has a link to this website:http://www.cakesbydesign.cc/GumPasteFlowerInstructions.pdfhth
Try the white velvet from CC recipes. it's a really mild chocolate flavor, and it goes great with coffee flavored frosting... it isn't overly chocolate...tastes like a great white cake with a hint of mocha.
i made some the other day that were amazing! It was pancake cupcakes with maple frosting and bacon crumbles ontop..the frosting was sooo good! I found it on a blog...http://www.browneyedbaker.com/2010/09/16/pancake-cupcakes-maple-bacon-buttercream-frosting/
i'm a hobby baker and i'd saved up to get the single one and when I went to order my dh surprised me with the difference to order the double bladed one. After struggling with the wilton single blade small and the ridiculous large one and attempting to use a serrated knife to cut evenly, the agby is wonderful!!! i've only used it on a few cakes and dh has had his turn as well it's well worth the expense. so easy to use, as leah said, one swipe and it's level and torted...
I've made chocolate with raspberry filling before and it's always a hit. When I'm making it for my family (no kids) I'll add raspberry liquor with the filling. I've used both the sleeve filling and my m-i-l's home made raspberry preserves. If you don't want raspberry you could try cherry pie filling (along the lines of chocolate covered cherry)...or strawberry...
