    Optical Illusion Cake Recipe and Tutorial

    Geometric Cake Ingredients:
    -3 layer 8" round cake, white buttercream covered
    -3 layer 6" round cake, white buttercream covered
    -Blue, black and white fondant
    -Diamond cutter

    Optical Illusion Cake Procedure:
    1.Prepare cakes and cover in buttercream.

    2.Roll out blue fondant, and cover the top of each cake with a corresponding round of fondant.

    3.Roll out blue, white, and black fondant using a fondant roller, with thickness guides in place.

    This will ensure that the fondant is even thickness throughout the application process.

    Using a diamond cutter, cut out 15-20 diamonds at a time from each color.


    Starting at the base of the cake, apply a blue fondant diamond horizontal to the cake, using water to attach if necessary.

    On the left side of the blue diamond, apply a black diamond vertically, and a white diamond vertically on the right side of the blue diamond.

    Ensure that the black and white diamonds meet in a vertical, straight line.

    Continue building illusion cubes over the two cake layers.

    Completing a cube at the top of the smaller tier adds an additional element of illusion! Otherwise, cutting off the overlap is fine too.

    5.Cake is best consumed within 2-3 days and should be kept in the fridge.
