Trending: Stunning Geode Wedding Cakes
It starts with rock candy…
A quick geology lesson: Geodes are those hollow rocks filled with sparkling crystals and minerals. You know, the ones used to make jewelry, decorate homes and even heal ailments (in some people’s opinions). But recently, they’re taking the wedding world (and Pinterest) by storm–specifically in cake designs using rock candy. Here, 10 geode cakes we’re proudly obsessed with.
TURQUOISE AND GOLD
This is what we’re talking about: marbled agate-like swirls bursting from the middle of the cake (and matching complimentary rock-candy stirrers). The color is everything.
BLUE, SILVER AND GOLD
You can also go cooler with silver accents and gradients of deep-blue candy crystals to give the appearance of really gazing into cracked rock.
ROSE QUARTZ AND AGATE
Lighter colors work well, too. Peach and pink swirls wrap this rose-quartz-colored geode cake, giving it movement.
AMETHYST AND GOLD
A rich, royal purple (or deep navy) plus the shine of gold leaf makes this option a bit more formal.
Go this route if you want just a few artful touches of the design but not a full rock formation.
This almost icy-looking fondant number was inspired by the Oregon coast and is not entirely edible. (Hint: Those are real geodes and crystals on top.)
EMERALD AND GOLD
How can you not love the modern coolness of this Wizard of Oz-esque creation?
FRAGMENTED CANDY ROCKS
Heads up: You don’t have to go full-on geode to nod to the trend. Another option would be to stud the cake with smaller sugar rocks on an ultra-smooth buttercream.
EARTH TONES WITH ACCENT GEODES
Not quite ready to dive headlong into the trend? Go reserved with a neutral- or deep-toned cake. Then simply top it with real decorative geodes.
Another for the faint of heart. You can literally top any cake with any geode.
