If you thought adults are nit-picky and fastidious, wait to see the little ones. For them is all about the shock value. Sure, the fairy cakes they are dreaming about have to be tasty as well, but, ultimately, everything revolves around the looks. With such an exacting clientele, we had to live up to the expectations and so we did. And if our birthday cake ideas would be translated into songs, they would sound like a mix between Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and PSY’s Gangnam Style –an insanely detailed professional approach of the crafting process, combined with the playfulness of the infantile spirit.
Brides are now having their wedding cakes look like gemstones. And, we can’t look away.
The latest trend for wedding cakes is the geode cake: a cake that looks like it has a piece of what looks like geode rock—like those big slabs of amethyst—baked right into it using bits of rock candy.
I used to make mud pies in my back yard with rocks in them all the time when I was a kid. Apparently I was ahead of my time; I should totally have been a baker.
Then again, maybe not. My mud-and-rock creations didn’t look anywhere as amazing as these beautiful cakes.
The trend lets brides bring more colour into their weddings in new and unique ways.
I seriously doubt you’re going to see this exact cake more than once.
And they just get more and more elaborate.
The level of detail cake makers are putting into the geodes is amazing.
Yep, you can eat that. But you almost don’t want to, it’s too pretty.
And all customisable.
You can do a more subtle feature…
Or go all out. It’s entirely up to you and your baker.
Who wouldn’t want a slice of this!?
Even if you’re not getting married, the geode cake is the pretty stunning way to celebrate anything. I’m thinking about getting one to celebrate having got through another Monday.
