This Kintsugi Cake is the hottest trend in cake decorating right now. Kintsugi is the Japanese practice of fusing together broken pottery with a mixture of resin and gold or silver powder. This pottery is considered to be more beautiful for having been broken.
I really loved that message and wanted to combine that technique with a new take on the popular mineral trend. In this tutorial you will learn how to create a stunning wedding cake with an impressive crystal center complete with growing sugar crystals and hand-painted gold kintsugi. This cake is sure to wow!
