If you still haven’t got this style, think of the amazing architecture of the Golden Gate Bridge or of the Chryser building. Your cake can capture the sensational shapes and forms of this architecture but on a smaller scale. Your cake can be intricate or simple and clean but bold in shape. The surface can be finished with buttercream or rolled fondant. It’s up to you how you want your cake to be: smooth or tasty! As for the ornamentation, you can choose lavish details or simple and powerful motifs.
