[Homemade] Mirror Glazed Geode Cake - Vanilla Bean Cake with Vanilla Bean Buttercream

Less difficult???

looks through history

Can you adopt me as another son? I'm 27 with a good job and can support myself financially. However I can't support myself with cakes.

It's so hard for me to believe you can eat something that looks that much like a geode! Great job! What does it taste like? How difficult was it to make?

This is just a vanilla bean cake but my kids tell me the glaze tastes like marshmallows. It was one of the less difficult cakes I've done. I sent a lot of time on little details, though.

It just so happens my family aren't really 'cake people'. I could use someone like you on my team.


Jesus Christ Marie,

I just made a vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream. I made three layers. I used this glaze recipe. I did a crumb coat of buttercream under the glaze. That was probably the trickiest part, getting the coat really smooth. I did that and then cut out a bit of a valley where I wanted the rock candy and butter creamed in there. I kept it in the freezer while I made the glaze. I followed the glaze instructions (make sure you have a thermometer) I screwed up a bit and a lot of it ended up looking drippy, which is not what I wanted but a good lesson for next time. After the glaze was reasonably set I placed all the rock candy onto it. I had two different shades of blue and white. I colored the inner layer to be a darker blue. For the outer gold layer I colored some white rock candy with some edible gold pearl dust..and mixed in some silver.. I used a bit of vodka to make sort of a paint. Then I just placed all the candy into a pattern using tweezers.

If you want to make one and have any questions I would be happy to answer them!

Did you hear that Reddit!!!! Okay I'm ready, man those cakes look delicious.

that looks like the riskiest fleshlight i've ever seen

Also, I know how to bake, I just don't know how to create masterpieces like you do. So I could supply wine and cheese, or beer and pretzels, or male strippers I mean liquor.

Wait if we're starting a gay cakehouse let me in

Does that matter? And yes I am

Careful he just wants to see ur husband naked

First thought without reading Title "I would totally lick that rock" lol

No! Straight, gay, and bake-curious are all welcome.

I mean her husband naked and cake? I say that would be having my cake and eating it too!

What are those crystals? Rock candy?


Would you mind posting the recipe or sending it to me? That looks amazing; my daughter loves geodes and would enjoy the fuck out of that.

Looks awesome! Glad our Mirror Glaze Tutorial worked out. Love what you did with the inside.

I used this glaze recipe.

Hey it's me ur daughter

... on LSD

You would enjoy it!

That's Reddit alright

Post to /sub/mineralporn they'll love it

Blue waffle.

It's really cool how you were able to blend two really trendy decorations. A lot of people, when they try to do that, go overboard and it looks bad because they tried too hard. Your cake makes the two elements (glaze/geode) build on each other and add to the overall aesthetic of the cake! Great work!

This could almost be marked as NSFW. It's bedazzled.

Are you excluding straight people? I like cake too :(

Holy crap that looks delicious.

Your username almost convinced me to pm you a nude of my husband. He's so cute to me that sharing with someone who'd appreciate would be fun! Then I realized the implications of sharing his nudes without his permission.

username checks out

Well I don't share PMs. That's the sacred oath I took to obtain this username...lol. Also I haven't gotten any yet. :(

I assure you I would not have posted this cake without a geologist's approval.

I just looked through their history too. I want all the cakes

Right??? Adoption papers, I need this person in my life, as well as these cakes!

ITYM vajazzled.

I died at bake-curious. I'm totally in!!!

Now is this like a "cake" that we eat or a cakehouse like there are crack houses. Which this is basically like a crack house since cakes are like crack to me.

Oh hell, let's do it!
