Trend Watch - Gilded Wedding Cakes

From solid metallic to gold dusted, silver encrusted, and elegantly accented - precious metals are not just for your wedding bands this year. Gilded cakes are a breathtaking way to incorporate one of the hottest trends for 2012 into your wedding day.

When I first read about this trend, I'll admit I was a skeptic. I was imagining gaudy, over-the-top, and... well... shiny. But after taking a closer look at gilded cakes, I've decided that there are definitely elegant, tasteful, and outright gorgeous ways to utilize metallics in cake design. These are a few of my favorites.

Jacalyn and Rio‘s red velvet wedding cake with cream cheese frosting was a three-tier confection covered with large silver polka dots and accented with bright pink orchids.
