There are cakes that look like real geodes and there are also painted cakes that are equally beautiful but perhaps a bit less labor-intensive. If you are mindful of your wedding budget it’s better to simply use geodes as decorations. A simple classy buttercream will be a great canvas for it. Cupcakes can too be decorated with colored sugar geodes, but will probably cost more.

Rock candy is a beautiful way to imitate crystals and minerals to decorate the outside and the inside of the cake (to imitate geode). If you want a sophisticated geode cake still, order a small two-tier display cake and serve the plain sheet cake and rock candy favors to guests.
