As you might have expected we're obsessed with geode cakes, like the rest of of the rest of the internet
While we love mesmerising cake decorating videos, there’s something really great about “surprise cakes,” where you cut into a cake and for example a load of rainbow sprinkles pour out. But, we’ve found one talented baker whose work really, well, takes the cake.
Alex Yeatts, a student at the Culinary Institute of America, whipped up a decadent chocolate amethyst cake. We’re not just talking “amethyst” the colour, or even a trendy geode cake. No, his entire
cake looked like an unpolished amethyst geode, so go on, watch this video of him cracking it open over, and over, and over again.
The most amazing part of Alex’s creation isn’t those sparkling rock candy geodes themselves, or the cosmically cool outer chocolate shells, or the fountain
of melted rock candy that flows out of the cake once it splits open. It’s that he worked on these amazing cakes for six months and somehow didn’t manage to just eat all the separate parts before they came together.
We say congratulations to Alex for his amazing culinary achievement. Take a look at more of his work, see his Instagram here
