Geode cakes are ‘rocking’ the wedding cake industry – and they are spectacular!
Not to be confused with galaxy cakes, geode cakes give the illusion of a glittery, crystallised amethyst baked right into the middle of it. Totally edible, of course.
There’s confusion as to who really started the dessert trend with a number of pastry chefs and wedding cake makers claiming to have invented the delectable design, but it’s believed that the geode cake first emerged in Australia.
Icing aficionado and founder of Intricate Icings Cake Design, Rachael Teufel, recently created a stunning amethyst-like wedding cake for an industry event. Rachael told the Huffington Post that it took 16 hands-on hours to create and lots of inspiration.
"I knew I wanted to create a show-stopping cake and use the geode as the focal point, creating an awe-inspiring visual experience for the guests."
Canadian cake connoisseur, Darci Weil is also crafting these too-pretty-to-eat creations, experimenting with all different shapes, sizes and colours. Speaking to New York Post, Darci explained that it’s kind of like a puzzle, “It can take one to two weeks just to wait for the syrup to crystalise.”
Once the crystals are ready, Darci bakes the cake, waits for it to cool, ice it and then carve a cavity out for her to fill with the sugar crystals.
The mesmerising mounds of deliciousness are showcased on Instagram feeds around the world and have become the latest bridal must-have.
We might not be heading down the aisle but we’re certainly heading for these cakes!
