      It's more a baroque or rococo style than Gothic.

    i had a gothic wedding cake. i was told the day before my wedding that i should change the colors of my cake because it would look tacky if they messed up. i flipped out but thankfully my cake turned out gorgeous. that was 7 years ago. this is lovely and makes me want to redo my whole wedding for our vow renewal next year.

    This cake looks beautiful! Why didn't you just airbrush the decorations with gold powder instead of painting them all by hand? That looks like a lot of work.

    That is neiter goth nor gothic . It looks more baroque in color and ornament. Gothic was colorful everything was painted colorful in those days. But its beautiful no matter what

    Hi Joshua.
    I’m Jade.
    I’m from Australia and I have an auto-immune disease called Coeliac.
    Was just wondering if you could maybe create a Gluten free cake for all the coeliac’s out there.
    American and Australian Coeliac standards are different. Here in Australia we are not able to eat Wheat, Barley, Rye as well as oats. But in America you can eat oats.
    Would love to have/try a Gluten free Coeliac Australia approved recipe!!
    Also do your recipes have measurements for the metric system for Australia, because I’m not sure about those measurements in Australia? 😂
    Lots of love, Jade xx ☺️
    Ps. This was the first vid I watch and I love it!! xx ☺️

    Cake was gorgeous, but i think there were too many decorations on the on tier. For mor of a Gothic look, bat wings linked together wouldve given it a better feel. Maybe a bat on top too

    "gothic" wedding cake - * insert Princess Bride clip - " that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
    Please review Dan Adam's A brief history of goths: ruclip.com/video/stojftffoqs/видео.html
    to learn more if you feel like doing so.
    This cake is not "gothic" in the historical sense, "gothic"in the architectural sense, "gothic" in the cultural sense - or any other way that I can think of.
    Did you call it "gothic" because you used a dark base color?
    is that all?
    A dark base color - is that seriously your ONLY reason for calling this cake "gothic"?
    I agree with projectSAYA - even the molds you used to make your fondant seem like you would have to search "baroque" to find them.
    Pretty cake - thanks for sharing your work,
    maybe think about your choice of a title a little more carefully though.
    I mean, if you care.
    Which, it doesn't seem like you do- so... thumbs down from me.

    You shouldn't worry about the trypophobia in any future cakes you make. It's become a fad for people to claim they have it, especially around the time this video came out. Most people don't have the phobia at all, certain gory images of things with holes in them will make them uncomfortable but they rarely react the way someone who actually has trypophobia would. Just because something makes a person uncomfortable doesn't mean they have a phobia of it. People are dumb.

    I think you mean baroque. The style at least with the stencils and shapes. Wouldn’t it of been easier to paint the stencils first before applying them, and air brushing them all at once ?

    I hate fondant! It is so lazy to to use. Cakes taste a lot better with frosting. I refuse to eat fondant because it doesn’t taste good, I hate the texture and it grosses me out that they play with it as it is clay. It gets handled too much and don’t trust that they wash their hands properly.
