This Insane Amethyst-Inspired Wedding Cake Will Blow Your Mind

1. Geode wedding cakes are having a moment right now, but this amethyst one takes them to a whole new level.

That gold foil! That RIDICULOUSLY realistic-looking amethyst! The fact that it may incite trypophobia!

2. Intricate Icing Cake Designs used granulated sugar and rock candy to craft the mind-blowing work of art.

Baker Rachael Teufel told BuzzFeed Life that she used multicolored modeling chocolate to set the geode in the fondant before adding gold leaf as a final touch.

Teufel whipped up the creation for an event company launch party in Denver over the weekend. The cake was part of a display that included a variety of geodes, which inspired her design.

3. Teufel added that the cake took about 16 hours to create, with several more hours of pre-planning.

4. Teufel shared several photos, as well as a video, of the cake on her Facebook page, which has been viewed more than 1 million times.

She doesn’t currently have a tutorial for her technique, but plans to set one up soon.
