All that glitters – gold cakes we love

Everyone needs a little bling in their lives. And these cakes are guaranteed to make the recipient feel like a million dollars.

We’ve been inspired by the words of cake decorating maestro Bryson Perkins, who shared his love for gold cakes in our latest Cake Royalty blog post.  If, like Bryson, you’re a big fan of all that glitters, read on for some golden cake inspiration…
