The Marble Cake Trend- Inside and Out
What’s a marble cake? There may be some confusion when you stick this term into a google search. Actually there are two definitions; One describes the inside of a cake and one, the outside…
Here’s an example of my take on a marble cake- Raspberry ripple on the right

The madness for marble cakes continues. And I am guilty… I am hooked on creating marble cakes for a lot of my London weddings. The reason being a word I love. Experimentation! And I mean with my cake ingredients. Say no to the illegal things, kids!
Making a marble cake is so much fun because you absolutely never know how it will come out. And that’s another way of making your cake completely unique. One marble cake is never the same as another.
So how are marble wedding cakes made? Well, without giving too many secrets away, (those will be coming soon in my classes) food colour paste is half mixed through fondant icing and then rolled out. There is a fine line between mixing it too much and not enough, so that’s where the magic comes in!
You can mix in multiple colours as well and create something realistic looking with greys and black or mystical and watery looking in purples or greens, or blues
Marble and Metallics
Metallic finishes always look great with marble. I use metallic edible paints to follow the marble through the fondant to create a crystal or agate look.
My most popular marble cakes are the ones I combine with my modern geometric cake style. Hexagon cake tiers are also great to throw in and mix things up a bit with forms.
