Gold drip and flowers– what a beautiful design! This cake is covered in buttercream then topped with royal icing dripping down the sides. The royal icing was then hand painted metallic gold. It was originally going to have hand made sugar flowers, but they weren’t quite coming out up to my standards. Shout out to Northside Flower Shop for being so kind and helping me with some real flowers to top my cake with on short notice. (Apparently July 5th is like national vacation time for florists– who knew?!) This ended up being a beautiful design that went well with the coordinating purple cake pops!
