This cake was made for a 50th wedding anniversary which is often referred to as the "golden anniversary". The cake is Red Velvet with a whipped cream cheese filling. It has a layer of vanilla buttercream underneath the fondant that is covering the cake. The golden ribbon at the base of each tier is made out of fondant. The pearls are buttercream. The bow and number 50 are made entirely out of fondant.
All of the shimmery gold food coloring has been hand painted on. The swirl style is baroque.
