A day in advance, roll out black, white, and gray fondant (gray is made from mixing the black and the white together) very thin. Cut strips and wrap loosely around a well-powdered sugar wooden dowel rod. Cut gray and white stars out of the fondant. Let set overnight. Carefully loosen curls from rod and with a sharp knife cut the long piece into several short pieces. Spray the gray pieces with edible silver spray. Spray gray stars with edible silver spray as well.
Roll out black fondant and impress with swirl texture mat. Cut piece of fondant to go around circumference of the cake. Attach piece to cake. Place cake on cake pedestal. Roll out black fondant and cut a circle to fit on top of the cake. Using tip #16, pipe a border around the top and bottom of the cake. Use piping gel to draw 2013 then attach silver dragees over the gel. Randomly attach stars and curls with piping gel.
