Wedding Ideas By Colour: Gold Wedding Cakes

Wedding Ideas By Colour: Gold Wedding Cakes | CHWV

Gold is a wonderful colour to introduce to any wedding. It can be both lavish and glamorous at a more opulent wedding, or understated and elegant in a contemporary venue. Be inspired by a multitude of exciting designs, from traditional, elaborate cakes to on-trend quirky styles.

Traditional and opulent

The more traditional wedding cake is perfectly suited to a classic wedding, perhaps in a historical venue or a rustic barn. Choose your style carefully, opting for gold wedding cakes with grandeur and height in a stately home, and more delicate designs in a country setting.

Elizabeth Solaru creates the most breathtaking, luxurious cakes. We love this design with a hint of gold.

Contemporary Chic

A more modern style of wedding calls for an equally elegant cake. To accompany your gold wedding ideas, these wedding cakes are generally more simple, with stacked tiers and smooth icing.

This chic stacked cake offers a modern twist to the alternative cake. Sugar flowers are miniature and delicate, with gold leaf tiers making a bold statement.

As gold as can be! This is effortlessly simple but oozes style. The softness of the delicate fresh flower is in perfect contrast to the sleek cake.

Alternative Cakes

Of course, sometimes we just want to be different! From croquembouche to macarons, gold can be introduced to all manner of styles.

Even a naked cake can be given a hint of glamorous gold. This semi-naked cake has gold leaf on the top of each tier, lending vintage style.

Miniatures and cupcakes

Individual cakes and cupcakes remain popular, and always make a beautiful display. You might even decide to place miniature cakes in the centre of each table, acting as a favour for each guest.

Cupcakes are a delicious choice and so easy to serve. This edible glitter turns a simple design in to something rather divine!
