Three cakes, created by sugar artist, Ana Parzych, give you a good idea of what effect adding touches of gold can have on your wedding cake. Wedding cakes can stand on their own, but when gold is introduced, it gives life and glamour to a cake that it wouldn't have otherwise.
Brushed gold bands with touches of golden seashells takes this cake from fun to sterling.
That spray of sugared flowers is giving me life, but it's the gold treatment on the cake that reigns everything in, making it a stunning and elegant wedding cake.
If you've never considered adding gold to your wedding cake, my question to you would be why? True, it's not for everyone, but I am curious if you'd be open to consider it when talking to your cake designer.
