ROCKIN' GEODE CAKES
TOP 15 | STUNNING STYLES | BEYOND WEDDINGS
Geode Cake & Decor themes are the latest rage in parties & celebrations today.
What is Geode? Simply put, its a ‘Rock on the Outside’ & an amazing ‘Crystal on the Inside’!. They are found in small burrows of the earth and are usually comprised of a combination of deposits(quartz, chalcedonic, etc) & minerals (calcite, celestite, etc).
The Geodes are so celestial & mind blowing, there was no way, I could not feature it! Since, it is widely used across all celebration elements – be it decor or patisserie, I am doing a 2 part series.
- Part 1 : Geode Cakes & Patisserie.
- Part 2 : Geode celebration Decors
So, lets OGLE at Geode Beauty in Cakes & Patisserie
1. GEODE CAKE: CLASSIC
One of the most stunning cake art decor. It is recommended to keep a copy of a natural Geode photograph closest to the color scheme required. This will provide a reference to help create the complex structure aesthetically.
2. GEODE CAKE: JEWEL
Create a rock jewel styled Geode. Can be created as bold or subtle as you wish. A matte rugged look gives a natural rock finish
3. GEODE CAKE: CRYSTALS
Beautiful crystal Geodes can be created for cake decor. This style really complements chic or rustic look!
4. GEODE CAKE: WATERCOLOR
For those who want an abstract Geode representation, watercolors work really well.
5. GEODE CAKE: ROCK

A very interesting adaptation of Geode Style. Includes the rock and inner Geode element. Playing the right color scheme, can make the crystal finish really pop!
6. GEODE TOPPER: ROCK
A Geode Topper elevates the cakes many folds. Unlimited designs & color schemes to play with.
7. GEODE TOPPER: SLICE
For those that are looking for a lesser dramatic feel, create a Geode slice. Ensure that the slice showcases the layers and you maintain certain translucency to create a natural finish!
8. GEODE CUPCAKE: CLASSIC

Take it beyond just wedding cakes..The Geode Cupcakes can complement the overall party theme. Works amazing as favors & even more awesome on the dessert table!
9. GEODE CUPCAKE: ROCK
Aim for a subtle look with just the rock candies. A word of caution. Less is more. Else, it will get sickeningly sweet!
10. GEODE CAKEPOPS
If the proportions are cracked, these cakepops are super gorgeous!
11. GEODE COOKIE: WATERCOLOR
Create amazing Geode Art on cookies. If the piece is meant for consumption as well, ensure that the sugar & taste is balanced.
12. GEODE COOKIE: ROCK
Again, less is more.. So, just add enough to bring out the theme.
13. GEODE CHEESECAKE
I love this take on cheesecake. Totally droolworthy.
14. GEODE MACARONS
Again, a watercolor Geode styling on Macarons. Beautiful!
15. GEODE DESSERT PLATTER
I totally love the Geode extension on the entire dessert platter. I love the fact that it is a beautiful OTT centerpiece.
So people! Geode is NOT a thing of weddings only. Go ahead, integrate it into your celebrations – big or small (doesn’t really matter!) Watch out for the Part 2 Series: Geode in Party Decor !
