13 Stunning Metallic Wedding Cakes

Metallic wedding cakes come in all manner of beautiful styles, featuring everything from painted gold icing to metallic flowers.

1) Minimalist Pink and Gold

Made with a pretty statement flower and gold detailing, this miniature blush-pink-and-metallic-gold wedding cake is a small wedding cake that’s perfect for an intimate wedding. The clean, minimalist look is an especially stylish one, and this cake is completed beautifully with a dainty gold wedding cake stand.

2) Jewelled Silver and Gold Metallic Wedding Cakes

You can add some metallic flair to your wedding cake easily with gems and jewels. The hanging crystals of the “floating” cake stand, the brooches, and the bands of diamantes give the below “Chandelier” wedding cake a beautiful glamorous look, and the “Royal Diamonds & Pearls” wedding cake is finished off perfectly with a pale metallic gold sash.

3) Metallic Blush Pink

These charming “Soft Blush” and “Royal Blush” wedding cakes are astonishingly pretty with their sugar lace embroidery, sugar pearls, ornate sugar flowers, white satin ribbons and, of course, the metallic blush pink tiers.

4) Metallic Iced Roses

Ornate, shimmering metallic pink sugar roses immediately draw the eye on this gorgeous “Akita” wedding cake. Pair them with a couple of metallic cake tiers and fine iced detailing and you have a stunning wedding cake that would look great as part of a pretty garden wedding theme.

6) Antique Gold and Roses

This towering luxury “Empress” wedding cake is made of metallic gold icing and comes with incredibly ornate, stunning details across the face of each tier. The red roses at the very top are a stunning final touch.

7) Metallic Gold Glitter Style

Metallic wedding cakes also look fantastic with a bit of texture, as shown with this “Glitterarti” wedding cake. The golden tiers are made up of thousands of gold sprinkles that, from a distance, almost give an effect of glitter-covered icing. The statement flowers also look gorgeous, especially with golden buttons at their centre.

8) Metallic Gold Butterflies and Lace

This “Rose Gold” wedding cake features lovely iced roses and striking metallic gold designs that are reminiscent of  lace appliqué (like you find on lace wedding dresses). Look closely and you’ll even see a handful of delicate metallic gold butterflies.

9) Bronzed Chocolate

While gold and silver and bright pastel pinks and blues make very pretty metallic wedding cakes, darker colours like copper and bronze also look magnificent. Just look at this “Bronzed Chocolate Splendour” wedding cake complete with iced flowers and leaves, gold sugar pearls, and painted gold icing on top of white and chocolate cake tiers. It looks almost antique and would make a beautiful cake for a vintage wedding theme.

11) Adorable Unicorns

These cute unicorn cupcakes and the majestic unicorn cake wouldn’t be complete without their shiny golden horns. The cupcakes in particular would make adorable edible wedding favours and the cake is a must-have for your hen party!

12) Metallic Gold Foil or Gold Leaf

Edible metallic foil or gold leaf might be an unusual wedding catering idea, but there’s no denying that it looks fantastic whether it’s on an iced wedding cake or a semi-naked wedding cake.

13) Shimmering Painted Gold Icing

One of the simplest but most effective ways to add some metallic detailing to your wedding cake is with painted icing. Check out these pretty examples below: the “Rock Chic” cake has splattered gold icing, the “Spring Blossom” cake has painted macarons, and the “Gilded Peony” cake has an entire top tier brushed with gold icing.
