Cakes, Squared: Bold Geometric-Themed Cakes

Posted by on May 27, 2013 in Cake Decorating | Comments


Math and cakes- not the likeliest combo, you say? Not so! There are a wealth of beautiful and striking-to-the-eye geometric cakes being created these days; the results are bold and original. Add pops of color and you have bright, fun and eye-pleasing cakes with a playful retro feel. From fondant squares to optical illusion delights, we think geometry plus cakes equals great!

Tiered Vintage-look Geometric Cake: The modern color palette combined with design restraint, shoots this beautiful cake straight to the top of the chain! It’s such a great pattern and I especially like the tiny strip of triangles that accent the top tier.

Neon Party Tiered Triangle Cake: This cake just screams party time with its neon yellow and pink triangle accents, and black and white graphical triangle covered tiers. A fun cake that references both the 1950s and the 1980s, it reminds me of the interior of a bright neon-filled diner-style restaurant.

Squares on Square Fondant Cake: This beautiful squares-on-square cake pattern reminds me of both an enlarged pixelated photo or a great vintage print gingham dress! Future meets past! I love the matching sugar cookie perched on the top of the cake: a great idea for a cake topper. This was created by the very talented and sweet Melody at Sweet & Saucy Shop for a very stylish baby shower, which you can read more about here.

Pretty in Pink Chevron Striped Tiered Cake: Clean, modern, bold and high-impact; I love this white fondant covered cake and its peach pink take on the beautiful symmetrical chevron trend. Erica O’Brien Cakes added an additional feminine touch with the hydrangea blossom sugar flower puffs on different tiers. Wouldn’t this be sweet for a bridal shower?

Mint Green Tiered Optical lllusion Cake: This cake reminds me of that 1980s video game Q*bert where that little orange guy with the horn nose bleeps up and down those little squares! Love the colors of this cake: mint green with the bold graphical black, white and sparkly gold! Such an eye-catching and fun cake, don’t you think?
