Stained Glass Cakes are always in trend whether you make a simple birthday or elaborate stained glass wedding cake. Choose to make it all white or a colorful mosaic style stained glass effect. I’m sure it will look gorgeous. Here are some of the best stained-glass cake tutorials I could find online for you.

The stained glass refers to the colored glass or to works of art created with it. You will find these mostly in stained glass windows and other objects. An important characteristic of stained glass is the effect of light passing through it. Throughout history, you will find stained glass windows in old churches both during the Egyptian and Roman times. 

The stained glass effect replicated on cakes is one that has been in trend for a long time. No matter how big of small a stained glass cake is always a work of art.

The best tutorial to learn the Stained Glass Cake is this online Craftsy class called Decorating in Three Dimensions by Maggie Austin. It’s an amazing class packed with lots of information on how to do the Bas Relief cake I shared recently as well as this Stained Glass technique. She also shared how to make the flower sprays on both these cakes. 
In her stained glass technique, she shows how to use a paintbrush and food gel colors as well as using the tissue paper and powder colors.
