With a background in Graphic Design and a lifelong passion for baking owner Tess MacMahon of East Sussex’s Chatter Cakes creates some beautiful and geeky cakes. “I take on any design style requests – from classic, vintage beauties to wacky whimsical show-stoppers. Don’t be afraid to ask about an ‘odd’ design – I’m sure I’ll love to do it”, says Tess.

Chef Duff Goldman’s Charm City Cakes created this amazing cake replica of a Gallente Space Station from the game Eve Online. Depending on your perspective, the Gallente are known as either the “do-gooders” or “champions of freedom” in the science fiction MMORPG which is set more than 21,000 years in the future in the human colonized system of New Eden. Either way, their space station looks too good to eat.

Lots of meticulous work went into the creation of this Iron Throne cake; the detailing on the swords and the woven effect on the back transform all that fondant into the seat of kings. The top of the cake is chocolate with chocolate mousse and chocolate cookie crumble filling. The bottom cake is made of vanilla cake with strawberry mouse and fresh strawberries.
It’s no lie that Cakes by Beth creates beautiful, award winning cakes from their studio in Manchester, United Kingdom; and this Portal/companion Cube wedding cake is no exception winning an award in my book. “The couple wanted something geeky but also still a wedding cake and pretty,” says owner Beth. I love how she took the heart detail from the faces of the companion cube to use as a pattern on the base tier. “We also changed the phrase from “the cake is a lie” to “the cake is not a lie” as I felt that this was more appropriate. A hand-painted the sign saying this, trying to emulate the style of the writing on the wall in the game,”adds Beth.
