luxury silver wedding cake with multiple designs

When you're a bride with a metallic wedding color palette, you probably don't want to leave your cake out of all of the glitzy fun!  These wedding cakes are super glam, shimmering in shades of silver and gold.

If you've got a big crowd, you just might need a tall cake!  We love this silver cake above, featuring layers with different, intricate designs and sugared flowers draped throughout.  Even if you just have gray palette, rather than silver, you can have a cake like this for just a touch of razzle dazzle.

Have your bakery give a classic fondant cake a dose of metallic with edible sprinkles and beads in different sizes. Above, this cake looks like each layer was dipped in silver and would be beautiful at a winter wedding.

We're gaga over this simple buttercream cake below with a sparkly twist. Not only is this cake's frosting laced with a metallic glow, but it also features silver glitter to create a trail of stardust from its topper.

Traditional brides don't have to worry about the golden cake of their dreams being too "trendy" to fit in with their classic decor. Embrace a simple design that uses gold like the white and gold cake below divided with black ribbon.

For traditional weddings that are a bit more regal, go all-out opulence with layers of gold and coppery flowers.  Even with the gold leafing technique this cake isn't overtly modern.

Minimalist brides will appreciate simple gold and white stripes on a stately wedding cake (below).

Modern weddings merge color and texture really well, and these cakes are no exception. Use gold discs or rough, sandy, gold "sprinkles" to decorate your fabulous cake.

The same large gold dust is used to decorate this black and white cake below. With its adorable hearts, this wedding cake would fit in wonderfully at a whimsical, playful event.

Rose gold isn't just popular with jewelry, we're also seeing it pop up in cake decor. With its pinky-peach shade, these accents soften up a black and white palette.

Love the glow but don't want to feature silver or gold? Ask for a pearl or iridescent sheen to your cake's frosting, transforming any color into a glimmering confection.
