Here’s a cake that’s rich in so many ways - the detail, the red and gold hues, and most of all, its symbolism. The best part? It looks modern while retaining tradition with its dragon and phoenix symbols, and burnished (almost urban) middle gold tier.
Black for hunting through the night,
For death and mourning the color’s white,
Gold for a bride in her wedding gown,
And red to call enchantment down,
White silk for when our bodies burn,
Blue banners when the lost return,
Flame for the birth of a nephilim,
And to wash away our sins,
Gray for knowledge best untold,
Bone for those who don’t grow old,
Saffron lights the victory march,
Green to mend our broken hearts,
Silver for the demon towers,
Bronze to summon wicked powers.
