Red and gold have a variety of wonderful meanings. Some believe that colors are lucky; others believe that they will bring prosperity; and in some cultures, red and gold are the traditional wedding colors. Not only do the colors evoke happy, warm feelings, but the high-contrast duo also makes for gorgeous, show-stopping cakes. Here are some of the most popular red and gold cakes from the gallery.

2009 Eastern Idaho State Fair Entry By mahutch
The theme for the wedding cakes was “the wedding dress”. I designed a cake after a lehenga gown. 12-10-8 tiers covered in red fondant and approximately 9,000 sugar beads painted with edible gold glaze and gold petal dust. This was the hardest wedding cake I’ve ever done. I was very happy with the end result and ended up winning first place in the intermediate division. Happy looking!!
