Amethyst Wedding Cake Whose Baker Was Clearly Under A Lot Of Pressure

This cake was under so much pressure that it crystalized into this beautiful amethyst. Or did it? The work of cake-master Rachel, of Intricate Icings, this geode cake is made completely out of edible sugar for the First Look Events at Moss Denver. Rachel explains how she made the cake:

“This cake took about 16 hands-on hours to create with several more hours of planning involved prior to making the cake,” Rachel told Bored Panda. “I was given several pieces of inspiration to draw ideas from, including actual geodes, a beautiful illustration, and a variety of table decor items like plates, chargers, and geometric floral arrangements. 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.”

Read our interview with Rachel below:

“I created the amethyst geode cake for an industry event celebrating the launch of First Look Events, an amazing boutique planning company owned by Brynn Swanson, as well a new venue, Moss Denver. The cake was the centerpiece for one of three “emotion” inspired vignettes that evening. The stunning “Joy” inspired vignette showcased a variety of geodes. It included rich textures, deep colors and lots of light letting the natural beauty and shape of geodes lead the design. Joy speaks of experiencing something that pleases the eye, warms your heart or soothes the soul.””The edible geode is made from a combination of granulated sugar and rock candy that was then crafted with multicolored modeling chocolate and designed within a fondant covered cake. Additional details were added with hand painting and gold leaf techniques. This cake took about 16 hands-on hours to create with several more hours of planning involved prior to making the cake. I was given several pieces of inspiration to draw ideas from, including actual geodes, a beautiful illustration, and a variety of table decor items like plates, chargers, and geometric floral arrangements. 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.”

“This is my first cake to go viral and I couldn’t be more excited. It an honor to have my work seen and appreciated by so many people.”

Bored Panda would like to thank Rachael Teufel for this interview.

I love the front and would have that for my wedding cake if I was intending to get married. It's beautiful and I love geodes. The back needs something, though. It resembles plain stacked marshmallows.

I personally think it's a good effect, especially if our are behind it. It makes the amythsts seem more dramatic
