When my cousin came over for her wedding cake consultation we spent most of the time talking about what she wanted for her cupcakes! Once we got the the small cake for the bride and groom to cut it was easy. Sticking with the metallic theme she was looking at gold and silver painted cakes, then I showed her a silver leafed cake and she fell in love! We decided to go with GOLD and I LOVE how it turned out!
TA-DA! do you love it? I love it! How amazing would this look on a full 3 or 4 tier wedding cake???? I used 24 of the 25 sheets the booklet came with to cover this 8 inch cake. It took me about 20 mins to cover the whole thing, so it’s a pretty fast way to go once you get your groove. BUT expensive.
I recently added a full video tutorial so YOU can make this gold leaf cake too!
Then the finishing details! The lace and flower! It was actually supposed to be a different flower, but the florist apparently didn’t understand the SCALE we wanted the flower. the one he left was this puny 2 inch bud… so I raided the centerpieces to get this big fluffy hydrangea instead! The cake was a lovely centerpiece for all the cupcakes and most important the bride was happy with it!
