One thing I love about gold is that it plays off of the light - giving you more than just one color. Another thing, it's blingy. Combine the two and you will get a warm and fabulous color scheme. Take a look at this cake, which is quite formal and blingy, do you see just gold? No, you see a variety of shades and depths of gold (I know, I put color boxes along the side to help). Wouldn't it make a decadent color scheme for a more formal affair?
And if a more casual affair is what you are going for, then the cupcakes below are a great way to incoporate gold into your color scheme.
Wether you incorporate just a hint of gold or go all out - the end result, I'm sure, will be fabulous!
