We saw tons of stars in bold metallics at the 2016 Met Gala, and Lady Gaga took the trend one step further (no surprise there!) presenting fashion designer Donatella Versace with a piece of gold art that literally took the cake. The three-tier confection was covered in gold—perfectly fitting for the designer's 61st birthday celebration. While this cake, adorned with spun-sugar flowers and embossed with Versace's face on the front, could, understandably, be a bit bold for a wedding, these gold cakes below might just offer the perfect dose of decadence for your affair.

Pair fresh flowers with a gold-dipped statement to contrast the sleek metallic with a soft, natural touch.


Bold with Gold


Who says a wedding cake has to be white? Try a black and white cake with gold accents for a luxe, formal dessert.


Lovely Laurels


Gold gives a luxe update to blush pink with this romantic, classically inspired confection.

Reminiscent of childhood ice cream cones dipped asymmetrically in chocolate, this layered treat gets a sophisticated coat of gold.


Heart of Gold


If an all-gold cake isn't your thing, little hints of gold (like these different-size hearts) are the perfect compromise.

For a bold art deco vibe, adorn your cake with geometric gold designs that look straight out of the '20s.
