Gold Foil Wedding Cakes

Gold foil wedding cakes can make them almost too pretty and unbelievable to eat but with the shimmering addition on any tier, your cake can be a priceless, gilded creation. If metallic gold is a statement color to your big day, think about incorporating this luxurious detail into your dessert. Even three simple white tiers can be dressed up with just the addition of gold foil. This cake features one thick streak of gold cascading down the front for an eye-catching detail.

If you want to incorporate a traditional look with your gold foil vision, florals soften the metallic with just the right touch. This four-tier cake features a generous dose of gold foil cascading down the front but is supplemented with white flowers for an elegant finish.

Using the gold foil on the entire bottom tier is surprising and effective. And to balance out the brightness, a crisp white tier and a lace-embellished tier are placed on top of it.

Incorporating a gold foil tier in between two white tiers creates an eye-popping contrast. This round tier is delicately offset not just by a band of lace but also the round white top tier and the square bottom tier, each with a dainty pearl design.

At first consideration, it would seem that gold is too pricey or too obscure an ingredient to consider as part of the menu. But with the gold foil wedding cake trend, you can quite literally have your gold and eat it, too.
