Metallic Cakes

I am really into metallics right now. Especially gold. I blame my friend Emily, now I look ghetto fabulous on a daily basis. So that got me thinking, what could make a cake ghetto fabulous as well? Duh! Edible metallic paint and fondant!

Check out these gorgeous cakes from across the globe. This trend is definitely catching on.

PS If you see me out wearing my sweet giant gold Michael Kors watch feel free to give me a “HOLLA!” Get one, you know you want to be ghetto fabulous too.

PSS This first cake has gold painted girl scout cookies on it…..umm I think I’ve died and gone to heaven? Where are my tagalongs?! Oh yeah… I ate them all. The day I got them. All 5 boxes…..

Blank Canvas

There are more than a few trends that have picked up and become very popular ever since Will and Kate tied the knot back in April of 2011. You remember that fabulous and very giant all white cake they served? Yeah well, that’s catching on too, just smaller versions :) So, take the plunge. Go for a real statement maker. Do you dare make your cake bare all?

What do you think? Would you go all white for your wedding cake? Do you think the absence of color makes a bigger impact than a colorful cake?

Trend Alert: Hand Painted Wedding Cakes

2012 is starting to show its true colors and new wedding trends are popping up all over the place. Hand painted cakes have been around for a while but brides from all over the world are picking up on this trend like crazy. The extravagant fondant creations and natural buttercream cakes are over and hand painted masterpieces are totally in!

Hand painted cakes give brides a new way of being creative and a way of including more personalization into their wedding day. The sky is the limit with hand painted cakes, they can be bold and beautiful like a tattoo inspired cake or something that resembles stained glass, or simple and personalized with a painted design in your wedding day colors. Check out these awesome examples below! There might be more than a few from my favorite cake designer ever the Sweet and Saucy Shop!
