Sunday Sweets Strikes Gold

I don't have a pot of gold for you today, minions, but I *do* have the shiniest, sweetest gold cakes.

(Carrie's Cakes, Utah)


Which are much, MUCH prettier. Not to mention tastier.

(Alena's Cakes)

These gold drips look like liquid metal! Amazing.


Sometimes you need just a touch of gold to make your cake sing:

(Albena Cake Design, Canada)


Other times, MORE IS MORE:

(Exquisite Wedding Cakes, Pennsylvania)

I starting singing "Shiny" from Moana when I first saw this. Scrub the deck, my friends. Aw yeah.


Did you know dyed pear slices could look like bright peacock feathers?

(Tortik Annuchka, Moscow)

Neither did I!! But I love the contrast of textures here, so gorgeous.


I had to remind myself this gasp-worthy beauty is edible; it looks like gilded porcelain!

(Honey Love Cakery, permanently closed)


Oooh, and check out the sheen on these mermaid scales:

(Maricota Chocolateria, Brazil)



Come for the gold honeycomb pattern, stay for the ADORABLE bumblebee:


I also love the ink drawing on the second tier. So many great design elements!


Dark jewel tones + gold = heaven for our eyeballs.

(I can't find the baker. Help?)


And finally, let's end on a high note (heh) with a completely edible, golden gramophone:

(Cake Story, Moscow)

WOW. Now that is Sweet.


Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friends! Be careful with the green beer tonight, hear? ;)
