This cake was one of those that had to have some compromising as far as the metallics were concerned. The bride and groom didn't want fondant, but they wanted some metallics. I did the short tier in fondant and painted it with non-toxic silver. The rest of the cake was buttercream, and I piped the scallop pattern and painted it silver, then added some silver and shiny pink pearls to the top tier.
