Vintage gilded details are set amongs winter accents for a fabulous baroque style wedding cake in the signature style of Zoet & Zoet in their design below.
The original jewelled starburst cake was designed by Lori Hutchinson of The Caketress and has inspired an array of variations since, but remains one of the most coveted winter wedding cake designs for brides (see the original completed design in our previous Jewelled Wedding Cakes feature). Below are a selection of jewelled designs in an array of pastels from a Caketress wedding cake class at Bonnie Gordon School of Confectionary.
Leslea Matsis has put her own spin on the jewelled starburst wedding cake design, incorporating an actual vintage brooch at the centre of her composition of opaque silver edible jewels, silver sugar almonds and silver dragees, for an extra touch of luxury.
