Glamorous, Purple and Gold Wedding Cake

I love the gilded doily pattern of this beautiful wedding cake by New Hampshire-based Wild Orchid Baking Company; it somehow resembles henna to me and would look right at home at a glamorous wedding like Nitya and Neal's. And aren't those deep-purple sugar flowers gorgeous? They look so incredibly realistic, I nearly thought they were fresh blooms.
