Amber Agate Geode Cake

My project for Rachael Teufel’s latest Craftsy class on Geode Cakes. Covered in fondant, modeling chocolate for the geode rim, colored rock candy for the crystals, gold and silver leaf. The agate slice was an idea that came from a real agate slice sent to me by a friend. I marbled the fondant in gray, white and tan, rolled it out and used the real agate slice as a pattern. Allowed to dry and then brushed the edges with gum glue and dipped them into crushed colored rock candy.

Supplies: fondant modeling chocolate rock candy

Thank you ladies. It took me awhile to get all the supplies I needed to make this but am happy it is done. Sandra did you like Rachael’s class? I found her to be very easy to follow step by step.

Cakeicer (Shirley) ...

Thanks.

Sandra Smiley ...

Yes, Shirley, I loved her class and will probably watch it at least a couple more times. Did you make your crystals or buy them? I had the impression the ones used in the tutorial were purchased.

You did such an amazing job! What a beautiful cake!

Sandra, I ordered white rock candy from Amazon, colored it by mixing assorted dust colors and alcohol. Poured the candy into the mixed colors and swirled it around with a spoon till they were all colored. Then I spread them on a plate and let them dry over night. In the tutorial of Rachael’s I am pretty sure hers were pre-made white rock candy colored after they were adhered to the cake.

Toni, thank you so much. I haven’t been really excited about learning any new cake designs lately, but when I saw Rachael’s cake I had to learn how she did it.

Anka ...

gorgeous!
