Golden Wedding

Some cakes you just fall in love with for their simplicity.  I had lots of fun creating this cake for a 50th Wedding Anniversary party.  Of course the gold decoration is all edible, made of sugar with 24kt gold dust painted on.  The brooch in the middle of the bow is made of sugar with Swarovski crystals for that sparkle.  The cake was hand painted with pearl stripes (just barely visible but which give a damask look).  On the top are paper roses in a creamy ivory.
