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!

  1. I wanted to know do u guys make cakes for weddings. I’m getting married and I wanted to know.

  2. Dear Liz

    I am from Cape Town, South Africa and want you to know I made your white velvet cake a 90th birthday, 1yr old party and 60th birthday. I generally make either chocolate, carrot or red velvet cake but this time the request was a vanilla cake which ai thought was so boring until I tried your white velvet cake recipe.
    OMG! It was an absolute winner

    Thank you
    Warm regards
