Create a subtle diamante effect with piping gel on this stunning Hollywood-inspired wedding cake.
This modern and glamorous tiered cake evokes the old romance of Hollywood in its golden era. Soft tones of ivory and gold teamed with royal icing swags and piping gel diamante offer a more subtle approach. Piping gel is very underused in contemporary cake decoration so this design presents a new use for this versatile and beautiful product whilst remaining simple and stylish. The diamante dots of gel catch the light and, unlike diamante ribbon trim, they’re entirely edible!
