Obviously we’re not talking real metallic cakes here – after all, you don’t want your guests to crack a tooth on the big day! However these spectacular creations look so real and shiny, they might fool you into thinking you’re munching a real piece of gold or silver.
We’re currently super smitten with metal-inspired wedding cakes, especially those covered from top to bottom in shimmery fondant. Alternatively, you can also go for a more textured look, using metallic coloured butter icing or cake petals.
However there are other more subtle ways to incorporate the metallic trend into your cake design – here’s what we mean:
- Use a stencil to create metallic patterns on a white or pastel coloured cake.
- If you’re opting for a tiered wedding cake, cover one or two of the layers in metallic coloured frosting and the rest in your themed colours or more textured frosting (like ruffles or roses).
- Cake glitter is a lovely way to add a little sparkle without going too extreme on the metallic front.
- Instead of a metallic coloured cake, display the wedding cake on a gold or silver cake stand instead.
- Top the cake with a metallic cake topper and drizzle your shiny frosting over the cake.
