In honor of New Year's Eve and all things festive and sparkly, I thought I'd share one of the most dazzling cakes I've come across this year. Cake designer Penny Stankiewicz of Sugar Couture in New York City created this glamorous gold confection—the top and third tiers are dusted with edible glitter and accented with shiny rhinestone swags. The bottom tier is covered in an elegant stencil pattern and painted lustrous gold, and the second tier is decorated with gleaming "scales" fashioned from fondant.

Happy New Year! —Heather Lee
