Glitzy Gold Cake

Glitzy Gold Cake

I made this over the top glitzy gold sparkly cake for my daughters 21st birthday! This had a sentimental twist to it though as the middle tier was hand painted with edible gold lustre with words from all her friends and family that they thought best described her! I was overwhelmed with so many lovely messages to include on it and I think it made a really special cake. The top tier is a Victoria sponge with vanilla bean buttercream and raspberry preserve, covered with a layer of marzipan & fondant. The bottom tier is double chocolate filled with galaxy chocolate buttercream and covered with rich dark chocolate ganache.
This was my first attempt at ganache and straight edges :-) Thanks to a wonderful tutorial by Poppy Pickering on Pretty Witty Cakes!


Totally adore!
