Let Them Eat… Gold? 20 Gorgeous Metallic Cakes
So you thought metal and cakes didn’t go together? Wrong! Although gold and silver may leave the “inedible” impression, the food dye used to make it is just like any other color addition. The gilded look feels ultra-contemporary but still pairs well with classic details. Dive in head first with a completely gilded cake or simply add metallic details for a subtle touch. Check out these 20 stunning examples of metallic cakes done exactly right.
5. Silver Chevron: By just adding silver accents to the middle tier, you keep your cake from starting to look like disco ball. Unless you want that effect, in which case, we don’t blame ya! (via The Knot)
12. Black + White + Gold: A bold black and white print is contrasted with shades of blush and soft wisps of gold, while extra tall tiers play canvas to a bouquet of anemones, roses and peony buds. (via The Cake Blog)
15. Gold Sequins: We love the different textures of this cake, from the softness of the flower petals to the 3D texture of the gold confetti sequin tiers and, of course, that mint green color. (via The Cake Blog)
17. Golden Dessert Table: Probably the most glam dessert table we’ve ever seen, the textures range from organic golden blooms to sharp gold shapes for a whole range of gilded deliciousness. (via Lael Cakes)
