Gold Wedding Cake Pics to Go Gaga Over

We saw tons of stars in bold metallics at the 2016 Met Gala, and Lady Gaga took the trend one step further (no surprise there!) presenting fashion designer Donatella Versace with a piece of gold art that literally took the cake. The three-tier confection was covered in gold—perfectly fitting for the designer’s 61st birthday celebration. While this cake, adorned with spun-sugar flowers and embossed with Versace’s face on the front, could, understandably, be a bit bold for a wedding, these gold cakes below might just offer the perfect dose of decadence for your affair.

Pair fresh flowers with a gold-dipped statement to contrast the sleek metallic with a soft, natural touch.

Bold with Gold

Who said wedding cakes have to be all white? Not this client. Black and gold, bold and gorgeous. #amybeckcakedesign #chicagowedding #goldisthenewblack #sugarflowers

Who says a wedding cake has to be white? Try a black and white cake with gold accents for a luxe, formal dessert.

Reminiscent of childhood ice cream cones dipped asymmetrically in chocolate, this layered treat gets a sophisticated coat of gold.

Heart of Gold

This is STILL one of my favorite designs. Originally, I created this “Sparkle my Heart” cake for a client’s 30th birthday. Now I get to sit down with her again to design her wedding cake! #cantwait #sparkle #heart #cake #blackandwhitestripes #gold #glitter #blush #pink #fabulous #designer #edibleart #luxurycakes #customcakes #glam #marblecake #doublebarrel #delacremestudio #delacremestyle #theoriginal

If an all-gold cake isn’t your thing, little hints of gold (like these different-size hearts) are the perfect compromise.

For a bold art deco vibe, adorn your cake with geometric gold designs that look straight out of the ’20s.
