Whether you are planning a bohemian chic wedding or a glamorous reception, choosing a geode cake allows you to achieve a ready-made look. “The best part about rock candy is that it’s available in almost any color, even transparent,” says Katie Frederick, owner of Maefarine cakes. “Geode cakes can come in complementary colors to any wedding or event and can be the highlight of any dessert table. ”
What is a geode cake?
A geode cake is a cake designed to resemble a geode or a crystallized rock structure. Geode cakes are typically made with rock candy and can be made to suit any size and color preference.
Geode cakes can be made with buttercream or fondant, depending on the pastry artist, as they use intricate art to achieve a unique look. “Pastry artists will use edible sugar candies to mimic the look of beautiful caves and sometimes add edible paint or glitter to achieve the shine,” says Frederick.

Geode cakes can also be dressed in edible gold or metallic silver or include marbled or hand painted details to bring in the colors of the geode. “Since they’re a centerpiece in themselves, they don’t necessarily need flowers or cake decorations and can be a feature on their own,” adds Frederick.
