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…

Marble Madness
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. If you’d like to know more about the marble wedding cakes I make, there are some examples over on my insta feed and my wedding cake gallery. And, if you’re getting married and want to push the boundaries with what can be done with wedding cake design, drop me an email. I’d love to hear your ideas!

About the writer and cake enthusiast…

Hi! I’m Katie and I have been fully cake obsessed since, forever…

Malarkey Cakes is built on a mixture of all my passions. My work is inspired by my background in art and design and I’m honoured to make wedding cakes for couples in love in London and the South East.

I’m passionate about blogging to share my knowledge and give guidance on the ins and out of ordering a wedding cake, making the most of it and making sure it gets the attention it deserves. I also share my tips on wedding planning and team up with fellow suppliers I am lucky enough to work with and who I highly recommend.

When I’m not designing, making or eating cake, you’ll find me trying out new food in London’s amazing restaurants, drinking great coffee, taking in stunning architecture, on long walks, smashing a decent weights workout or exploring the world.
