Amethyst Cake is the New Definition of Beauty
These days everyone is talking about it. Yes, the beautiful Amethyst Geode Wedding Cake from Intricate Icings. And we totally get it why.
Rachel, the creator of this cake, declared in an interview for Bored Panda that „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.”
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. And on their Instagram page you can take a good look at it, from all angles.
But this is not everything that we need to know about Intricate Icing. They have a very large collection of cakes and Rachel is well known for her inspired-by–bridal-fashion cakes, a lot of fun cakes for parties, handpainted cakes, upside-down cakes, ruffled cakes, geometric cakes and lots of other kinds. They even have a Game of Thrones themed cake, with a little pretty dragon and perfect sculpted wings and a sweet 16 cake inspired by The Great Gatsby! Yeah, I know, it’s crazy, but just look at them.
Beautiful, right? And what is even more amazing is that she gives classes! Check the webpage for discounts and subscriptions if you are interested in becoming a cake artist.
