Rachael Teufel, the owner of Intricate Icings Cake Design, created a stunning amethyst geode wedding cake for a recent industry event celebrating the launch of event planning company First Look Events and wedding venue Moss Denver.
The geode design is made from a combination of granulated sugar, rock candy, multicolored modeling chocolate, and the cake itself is covered in white fondant.
According to Teufel, the cake took about 16 hands-on hours to create, on top of several hours of planning beforehand.
"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," Teufel told The Huffington Post. "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."
