We're total Grand Canyon nerds, so our cake for our Grand Canyon wedding was such a blessing. I used to work at a cakery and one of my past co-workers/good friend offered to make us a cake for only cost of ingredients.


It is completely geologically accurate, which is something we really insisted on from the start…

  1. Far out! What a great idea… mmmm I could totally go an Aussie version with a cake of Uluru or Kata Tjuta. If it gets me smiles likes yours on my big day, it'd totally be worth the extra effort it must take to make a geologically-correct cake! Thank you for sharing x

  2. Being a cake decorator on the side, I think this is the coolest cake I've seen in a long time! Nice job on it too!!

  3. How funny! I laughed as soon as I opened this post. I have a geologist friend who would have done the same thing with this cake, turned it into a lesson about the earth's layers.
