Rock Candy Geode Topper

Skill level: Intermediate

Learn how to make this gorgeous geode candy topper from Viki Kane of Just a Little Dessert Company. Viki pretty much started the geode cake trend with this topper design way back in 2014.

When I first saw this topper at Cake Fest 2014 I had to know how it was made! I immediately contacted the amazingly talented Viki Kane and begged her to please make a tutorial. Thankfully she agreed. I have never seen such a cool geode affect created 100% from edible materials. It looks so real.
