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.

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.
