How To Make A Fault Line Cake?

Part of what makes fault line cakes look so cool is the contrasting depth between the fault line and the outer frosting. Use a very thick coat of frosting so that after smoothing it still stands out from the center design. Prepare your cake. Have your cake stacked, crumb coated and chilled before you start your design.

How do you sprinkle a fault line cake?

To prepare for your beautiful sprinkle fault line cake, first divide the sprinkles into two separate bowls: one for the jimmies and smaller sprinkles, and one for the large spheres and dragees. If you’re planning on coloring your buttercream, now is a good time for that too!

What is the difference between a geode and fault line cake?

Similar to a geode cake, a fault line cake is made with deliberate crevices (but this time, around the middle of the cake). This crevice is then filled with sprinkles, cookies, flowers, and more to create a ‘fault line’! Despite its elaborate look, a fault line cake is surprisingly easy to make and customize at home

What is a fault line in baking?

Fault line cakes are the new, edible pieces of art that look like an outer chunk of your cake is missing and you can see into the cake’s interior. Finish it off with thick—and we mean thick—layers of frosting on the top and bottom of the cake. These layers should stand out about a quarter-inch from the middle section.

Who created the fault line cake?

One of the best things about this cake trend is that it does allow for so much creativity but the basic steps for creating a fault line cake are the same. As far as I can tell, this is the earliest version of the fault line cake, created by Milk Moon Kitchen on Instagram.

What is rock faulting?

A fault is a fracture or zone of fractures between two blocks of rock. Faults allow the blocks to move relative to each other. This movement may occur rapidly, in the form of an earthquake – or may occur slowly, in the form of creep.

How do you keep berries from bleeding on cakes?

I used whole strawberries on a recent cake and put a small square of wax paper underneath each one to help prevent any bleeding.

Sprinkle Fault Line Cake Tutorial

  1. There’s a huge sprinkle craze going on on Instagram right now, and I have no idea who started it!
  2. After admiring sprinkle fault line cakes for weeks, I finally had the opportunity to put them to the test for my own family and friends.
  3. When I saw the Vintage Rose Gold sprinkle mix from SprinklePop, I knew I had to use it right away.
  4. The sprinkles are beautiful on their own, but the fault line styling really brings them to life!
  5. I simply adore the way they seem peaking through the buttercream: it’s rather lovely, isn’t it?
  6. Allow me to confess that this was my second effort at making this sprinkle fault line cake before I pretend to be an expert and show you how to make it yourself.

The first time I attempted this approach, it did not go as planned.The sprinkles got in the middle of my smooth buttercream, and my fault line was far too little, so I ended up with a ripply, speckled disaster.Fortunately, I learnt some crucial lessons from my first try, and I can now advise you how to prevent such cake disasters in the future!Now, I can certainly state that I have included all of the necessary instructions for making a failproof sprinkle fault line cake below.Before you read about it in detail, here’s a little video to show you how it’s done:

You Will Need

  • Cake that is 6 inches in diameter and has been crumb coated and refrigerated
  • 1.5 batches of vanilla buttercream
  • food color gel of your choosing (optional)
  • 1.5 batches of chocolate buttercream
  • Vintage Rose Gold sprinkles (or your favorite SprinklePop combination)
  • Icing smoother
  • 4 oz container of Vintage Rose Gold sprinkles (or any favorite SprinklePop mix)
  • An angled spatula
  • Gold Edible Art Paint (gold luster dust combined with a little vodka also works)
  • A small food-grade paintbrush
  • An angled spatula
  • An angled spatula

Step 1: Separate The Sprinkles

  1. Firstly, split the sprinkles into two bowls: one for the jimmies and smaller sprinkles and another for the huge spheres and dragees.
  2. This will ensure that your lovely sprinkle fault line cake comes out perfectly.
  3. In addition, if you intend to color your buttercream, now is an excellent time to do it!
  4. Using Americolor Dusty Rose, Peach, and Maroon as a base for this rustic rose color, I created this effect.

Step 2: Frost Only The Middle Of The Cake

Place the crumb-coated cake on a turntable and frost a thin layer of buttercream around the perimeter of the cake, avoiding the sides and center. After that, use your icing smoother to smooth it out. This will be the location of the fault line’s intersection, where the sprinkles will be directed.

Step 3: Apply The Small Sprinkles

  1. Placing a baking sheet below your cake turntable will help to catch any sprinkles that fall (this may be a messy process!) In the next step, decorate only the newly frosted section of your cake with jimmies and tiny sprinkles (if desired).
  2. By excluding the bigger sprinkles from this section, you will avoid them from getting in the way once the buttercream fault line has been frostd to perfection.
  3. That was the most important lesson I learned from my first experience with this approach.
  4. Using smaller sprinkles makes it simpler to create a fault line that is smooth and faultless.
  5. Do not be alarmed; the bigger sprinkles will be added later on to complete the look.

Step 4: Frost The Fault Line

  1. Frost and smooth the top of the cake, then pipe buttercream onto the top third and bottom third of the cake, stopping just where the sprinkles begin to appear.
  2. It is OK to overlap the sprinkles in some spots, but it is preferable to keep the majority of the sprinkles visible.
  3. Also, make sure that the layer of buttercream that you apply is thicker than the layer of sprinkles that you apply.
  4. So that when you attempt to smooth it out, your icing smoother will glide over the buttercream without pulling any of the sprinkles in the process.
  5. Then, using an icing scraper, smooth the buttercream to produce even sides without touching the sprinkles on the top and sides.
  6. As soon as the sides of the cake seem smooth, use the angled spatula to form sharp edges around the top of the cake by swiping any remaining buttercream from the outer border of the cake toward the top center of the cake with the spatula.

Once your fault line is perfect, place the cake in the refrigerator for around 20 minutes to let the buttercream to harden up before proceeding to the next stage.

Step 5: Add In The Large Sprinkles

Now that the buttercream is nice and firm, it’s time to include the other components of this gorgeous sprinkle mix! Add all of the big sprinkles that you divided out in Step 1 to the section of the cake that has been sprinkled. Continue to add sparkles until the fault line is a spectacular sight to see.

Step 6: Paint The Edges (Optional)

  1. In order to complete the effect, paint some Gold Edible Art Paint onto the borders of the fault line using a tiny food-grade paintbrush to finish it off.
  2. Alternatively, you could use gold foil or gold luster dust combined with vodka, or whatever your preferred method of achieving an edible gold appearance is.
  3. And there you have it!
  4. This fault line cake with sprinkles is quite appealing.
  5. I’m a big fan of this approach now that I’ve learned a few tips and tricks for doing it well!
  6. It is my goal that you will feel a little more confidence in your sprinkle fault line cakes now that you have learned a few tricks and tips.

Fault Line Cake

I indicated in my geode cake lesson that I was really looking into wedding cake ideas on Instagram and Pinterest, and that I was doing so right now.The fault line cake, which has become increasingly popular in recent years, is one of the most popular designs to emerge.For me, fault line cakes are a twist on geode cakes, but they have substantially more pizzaz and flare than the original.

  1. Instead of filling the cake’s cut-outs with rocks (which, if you follow me on Instagram and read my geode cake tutorial, you’ll know I was adamantly opposed to because I was concerned about chipping a tooth), you can use other ingredients such as candy bars, cookies, fruit, sprinkles, and even buttercream flowers to decorate the top of the cake.

Chocolate Fault Line Cake

I wasn’t sure if I wanted a fault line cake for my wedding cake (they looked too casual and fashionable; I wanted something more classic), but seeing all the varied designs encouraged me to make one at home for my mother’s birthday this year.Because there is no greater match than yellow cake and chocolate icing, I utilized the yellow cake recipe from my cookbook, Weeknight Baking, and mixed it with a Nutella Swiss meringue buttercream.

Fault Line Cake Tutorial

The following are the main components you’ll need to construct a fault line cake, as well as a step-by-step pictorial instruction on how to ice it:

Ingredients to Make a Fault Line Cake

A Really Good Cake Recipe

In my geode cake guide, I also said that successful cake designs should ALWAYS begin with good cake recipes, which is something I believe to be true.For my fault line cake, I used the yellow cake recipe from Weeknight Baking, which was delicious.Because it contains both butter and oil, the yellow cake is extremely moist and tasty; it also contains buttermilk, which helps to keep it from being too sweet.

  1. Although the cake contains a lot of liquid and fat (thanks to the butter), it has a great, strong texture that is easy to frost.

Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting

A large part of what determines the overall ″lewk″ of a fault line cake is the contrast between the rocky centre and the remainder of the cake, which is usually smooth and iced.Not sure about you, but smoothing out the icing on a cake is one of my least favorite duties when it comes to cooking or decorating.You need a lot of practice and expertise to make it extremely smooth, and it always takes a long time.

  1. Having said that, there are practices that may assist any baker in their endeavors.
  2. One of them is to use a frosting such as Swiss meringue buttercream to decorate the cake.
  3. Swiss meringue buttercream is a dream to work with; it smooths out wonderfully, pipes well, and holds its overall shape really well.
  4. It is also extremely versatile.
  1. The Swiss meringue buttercream icing that I used for my fault line cake was flavored with Nutella, and it was perfect for the cake.


In most cases, chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream is flavored with cocoa powder or some form of melted chocolate; however, for this cake, I had the wonderful idea of flavoring it with Nutella instead.I’ll admit that the Nutella taste in the buttercream was a little TOO faint, just between you and me.Overall, I believe this is a positive thing because a heavily flavored Nutella icing paired with the cake would have been far too sweet?

  1. But, even so, as much as I loved Nutella, I couldn’t help but wish there was more of it.
  2. As a result, I made the decision to include Nutella in the fault line as well!
  3. The chocolate pearls (more on that in a moment) that are suspended in the center of the cake are held in place with Nutella spread, to be more specific When it comes to fixing fault lines, most people use icing, but I discovered that adding an extra tablespoon of Nutella in its stead provided my whole cake the chocolate hazelnut taste that was lacking from the buttercream.

Valrhona Chocolate Pearls

Valrhona, one of my favorite chocolate producers and a long-time blog partner, sent me a box of chocolate pearls to commemorate my engagement a few weeks ago.They were delicious!In case you haven’t had their chocolate pearls before, you’re in for a treat!

  1. They’re essentially chocolate-covered crunchies that can be sprinkled on top of any dessert (or, if you’re like me, shoved into your mouth by the handful) and are delicious.
  2. Valrhona pearls in various flavors of dark chocolate, dulcey chocolate, caramel milk chocolate, and white chocolate were used to fill the break in my fault line.
  3. I understand that they are very expensive, but I assure you that they are totally WORTH IT.

Edible Gold Leaf

I used edible gold leaf to outline the margins of the cake’s fault line in order to make it stand out even more (similar to how I made this pattern on this mint chocolate kintsugi cake and this ube kintsugi cake).Not going to lie, it took a long time, especially since I had to use tweezers to position the gold leaf in the right location.If you don’t have a lot of free time, you may entirely skip this stage (I’ve seen other fault line cakes that didn’t have this border; they’re clearly more rustic, but they still look fantastic!).

  1. There are also other techniques that tell you to use a paintbrush to paint gold dust on instead of using a stencil; however, I cannot personally vouch for this method because I did not attempt it myself.

How to Make a Fault Line Cake

For a fault line cake, you’ll need a rotating cake stand (which will help you ice the sides smoothly) and an offset spatula to create the fault line pattern.Despite the fact that you can use a large offset spatula, I found that a smaller offset spatula was simpler to work with (because you’re just smoothing out a portion of the cake at a time).1.

  1. Begin by building your layer cake and applying a crumb coat of Nutella Swiss meringue butter cream to the top and sides of the cake.
  2. A crumb coat is a thin coating of icing that is put over the top of a cake to assist keep crumbs from falling through the layers.
  3. Anyone who has attempted to frost a cake without using a crumb coat will understand how easily crumbs may shake loose from the cake and become entangled in the frosting, resulting in ugly lumps on the finished product.
  4. The crumb coat helps to seal in any crumbs, allowing you to add thicker and smoother layers of frosting later on to finish the cake off perfectly.
  1. 2.
  2. Spread Nutella on the centre of the cake.
  3. 3.
  4. Only the centre of the cake should be frosted with Nutella, leaving the top third and bottom third of the cake uncovered.
  5. Approximately 12 cup of Nutella was required for the task, and I found it was easiest to microwave it on low for 20 seconds in order to make it highly spreadable and spreadable.

Because the Nutella will be covered with chocolate pearls throughout the bulk of the cake, you don’t have to worry about it being completely smooth; nevertheless, you do want it to be reasonably even across the cake.This will make it easier to ice the upper and lower portions of the cake later on in the process.3.

  1. Apply the chocolate pearls to the Nutella with a pastry brush.
  2. Keep an eye out for messes since this section can get nasty!
  3. Place a baking sheet below the cake stand to collect any pearls that fall from the cake stand.
  4. 4.
  5. Frost the top and bottom portions of the cake with a light layer of frosting.
  6. Using an offset spatula, cover the top and bottom portions of the cake with the remaining frosting, being careful to leave the pearl-covered area unfrosted.
  1. You want to use enough buttercream to cover the halves evenly and thoroughly, and you want to make sure that these layers are thicker than the layer of chocolate pearls on top of the buttercream.
  2. Using thicker layers will help to guarantee that your offset spatula does not become entangled in the chocolate pearls while you are smoothing out the frosting in the following step.
  3. 5: Using the offset spatula, carefully smooth the top and bottom parts of the cake to perfection, taking care not to touch the chocolate pearls in the process.
  4. The top and bottom half of the cake should be smoothed out using an offset spatula and your rotating cake stand.
  • It’s a good idea to dip the offset spatula in hot water at this stage, since the hot water will aid in smoothing the surface.
  • My preferred method is to keep a pint glass of boiling water nearby and use it to rapidly dip the blade of the offset spatula into it (make sure your offset spatula is made of a heatproof material like metal!
  • ), wipe it dry quickly, and then use it on the cake shortly thereafter

Make It Weeknight Baking

In the same way that I do with other beautifully adorned cakes, I divided down the work for this cake into many days’ worth of effort.This is due to the fact that creating a fault line cake can be quite time-consuming; in fact, it took me almost the whole afternoon to assemble, apply the fault line, and frost the cake!Even if I had prepared the cake on the same day, it would have taken me a greater amount of time.

  1. However, in order to avoid being stuck in the kitchen all day, I ended up breaking the recipe into two halves, which are as follows:
  1. Day One: Get the Cake Ready! (about 1 hour, not counting baking time) Cooking Instructions: Cool the cakes to room temperature according to the method below, then flip each layer out onto its own separate piece of plastic wrap. Wrap the dish securely in plastic wrap and place it in the freezer overnight—DO NOT refrigerate! Cakes that are refrigerated lose moisture, but cakes that are frozen retain moisture. If you’re in a hurry, I’d prefer it if you left the cakes covered at room temperature
  2. Day Two: Prepare the frosting, assemble the cake, and crumb coat it (about 1 to 1 12 hours).
  3. While working with Swiss meringue buttercream frosting, one of the most frustrating things about it is how time-consuming it is to actually make the frosting. To prepare the meringue, you’ll need to cook the egg whites and sugar to a certain temperature (about 15 minutes), beat it until it reaches room temperature (another 10 minutes), and then gently add butter to produce the buttercream (around 10 minutes total time) (around 15 minutes). The buttercream alone took more than 30 minutes of effort! Liars are those who claim that Swiss meringue buttercream comes together in a short amount of time. Nevertheless, the advantage of Swiss meringue buttercream is that, after it has been prepared, it stores very well in the refrigerator. As soon as I’ve finished making the buttercream, I construct the cake and crumb coat it. It might take as little as 30 minutes or as long as an hour, depending on your level of experience. I then placed the covered cake in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to allow the buttercream to set before wrapping it in plastic wrap (pro-tip: a chilled cake will be easier to frost the next day, and at this point, the buttercream-covered cake will not dry out as easily as if it were left naked). After that, I transfer the remaining buttercream to an airtight container and (gasp!) leave it out at room temperature until tomorrow so that I may use it up. One caveat: my house is notoriously frigid (in the winter, we’re lucky if the temperature rises over 60°F), so I can get away with keeping it at room temperature
  4. nevertheless,
  5. Day Three: Bake the Fault Line Cake (it should take around 1 to 1 12 hours) and serve!
  6. You’re still with me, aren’t you? To finish your fault line cake, follow the instructions in the tutorial above. The Swiss meringue buttercream will need to be re-whipped before being used on the cake
  7. just scrape it into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and beat on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes.

Of fact, the timetable outlined above is a little sluggish.For a two-day schedule, I recommend creating the cakes the day before and then assembling and decorating the cake on the second day.This will save you time and money.

  1. And if you liked the way I laid it up above, you should definitely check out my cookbook, Weeknight Baking, since practically all of the cake recipes in the book are laid out in this manner!

Best Tips for Making a Fault Line Cake

  • If I had to do it all over again, I’d bake the cakes in 6-inch pans and make a 4-layer cake instead of the 3-layer cake (the recipe will make enough batter for this, too). Why? The 6-inch cake will be easier to design than the 8-inch cake because of its smaller circle. It will also be higher, which will allow the fault line to be more prominently displayed. The next time, the next time.
  • For even cake layers, I like to weigh out the layers with a digital scale before baking to ensure that they are all the same weight. The quickest and most accurate method is to place a cake pan that has been prepared on a digital scale and tare it to ″0.″ Pour batter into the pan until the scale detects the weight specified in the recipe (because, sure, I’ve included the approximate weight of batter required for each pan in the recipe!) and set aside. Make a duplicate of the first cake pan with the second and third cake pan.
  • Leveling your cakes will result in a robust cake with even quantities of buttercream between each layer of cake. When baked, the majority of cakes will have a little dome in the center (this is because the sides of the cake tend to cook faster and set more quickly than their middles). Using a serrated knife, lop the domes from the top of the cake before assembling it. Believe me when I say that I was a slacker and didn’t level the first two layers of my cake. You can also discern a little bit from the photo. Isn’t it interesting how much more uneven the buttercream filling between those two layers is compared to the buttercream filling between the middle and top layer (which I leveled)? Make a difference
  • don’t be concerned if you get a little frosting on one or more pieces of your chocolate pearls—most people won’t even notice, I guarantee you! For those who are type A (like me) and this is a major source of frustration, know that the chocolate pearls are really forgiving, and any buttercream frosting that accidently gets on them may be gently wiped or dabbed off with a paper towel.

  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (8 ounces or 227 grams) canola oil
  • 1 cup (8 ounces or 227 grams) buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (12 ounces or 340 grams) cake flour

For the Nutella Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting

  • 13 cup (6 ounces or 170 grams) egg whites, from about 5 to 6 large eggs
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 14 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 cups (16 ounces or 454 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 14 cup (2.5 ounces or 71 grams) Nutella
  • 1 12 cups (10.5 ounces or 298 grams) granulated sugar

For the Yellow Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F with a rack in the center of the oven and the oven door ajar. Cooking spray three 8-inch cake pans well and coat the bottoms of each with a circle of parchment paper before starting the recipe. Spray the parchment paper as well
  • In a medium-sized mixing basin, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt until combined.
  • To make the butter and sugars, place them in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix until smooth. On medium speed, beat for 3 to 4 minutes, scraping down the bottom and sides of the basin as needed with a rubber spatula, until the mixture is light and fluffy and has doubled in volume. Using a small, slow-motion mixer on low speed, add the eggs one at a time, adding each egg only after the previous one has been well mixed and scraping the bottom and sides of the bowl after each addition. Using an electric mixer on low speed, carefully pour in the oil followed by the buttermilk and vanilla. Continue to beat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth. Gradually incorporate the dry components into the wet ingredients, mixing only until barely mixed. Scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl once more, then continue to beat on low for another 30 seconds.
  • Distribute the batter evenly between the cake pans
  • if you’re using a digital scale to measure out the layers, keep in mind that this recipe yields approximately 66.5 ounces of batter
  • pour 22.15 ounces of batter into each cake pan. Preheat the oven to 400°F or 450°F. A skewer pushed into the middle of the cake should emerge with a few crumbs attached if the cake is done. When it is finished, the top of the cake should bounce back when lightly touched. Allow the cupcakes to cool fully in the pans on a wire rack before icing them.

For the Nutella Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting

  • In the top pan of a double boiler, whisk together the egg whites, sugar, salt, and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form (or, make a homemade version by placing a heatproof bowl over a sauce pan filled with 2 to 3 inches of simmering water, ensuring that the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water). Using a candy thermometer, cook the mixture over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally, until it reaches 160°F. Once the mixture hits 160°F, immediately transfer it to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Whisk at a high speed for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened and formed medium-stiff peaks, depending on your preference. At this point, the outside of the mixer bowl should be at room temperature, and there should be no residual heat escaping from the meringue through the top of the mixer bowl. Stop the mixer and use a rubber spatula to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl, as well as the whisk attachment and the whisk. Using the paddle attachment, replace the whisk attachment
  • with the mixer running on low speed, gradually add the butter, a few cubes at a time. Following incorporation, raise the mixer speed to medium-high and continue beating until the buttercream is silky smooth, about 3 to 5 minutes more. Remove the paddle from the bowl and use a rubber spatula to scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl. Mix in the Nutella on a medium-low setting with the mixer running. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down the bottom and sides of the bowl, then beat on medium-high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the frosting is creamy and smooth.

How to Make a Fault Line Cake

A new trend in the cake business has emerged in 2019: fault line cakes are everywhere!You may not be aware of it, but this new trend is just a method of frosting cakes in which you start with a circle of decoration and then frost the rest of it without covering up the circle.The real ″fault line″ may be embellished with virtually any material you can imagine.

  1. Just a few of the embellishments I’ve come across include sprinkles, buttercream flowers, and fruit to name a few.
  2. I decided to use an abstract buttercream design to adorn the fault line on my fault line cake in order to make things a little simpler on myself.
  3. Despite the fact that the entire process of producing a fault line cake is quite simple, I did learn a few tricks along the road that will make the process much easier for you!
  4. Continue reading for my suggestions and a complete set of instructions, or watch my video guide!

Tips for Making A Fault Line Cake:

  1. Choose a cake that is taller. Using this advice isn’t strictly necessary, but it does make life a little simpler. In order to create a fault line cake, I started with a 6 inch/3 layer cake, which is my standard recipe. Upon closer inspection, I saw that this left little opportunity for my own flaws to manifest themselves. Instead, I went ahead and added three more levels! As a result, if you have the possibility, a higher cake will provide you with far more vertical area in which to construct your fault line.
  2. Make your design flaws more noticeable than you believe they should be. At first glance, it may not appear to be a problem, but as you smooth out your final application of frosting, a significant amount of frosting will be pushed over the margins of your fault line. Using a larger pattern than you think you’ll need will prevent you from accidentally covering too much of it with your final icing.
  3. Check to be that your cake is completely cold in between icing the center ring and frosting the remainder of the cake. Just as with any other type of buttercream design, a small bump can cause major problems! After you’ve finished creating your fault line pattern, place it in the refrigerator to cool until everything is absolutely hard. Make sure the final layer of frosting is thick enough to stand out from the flaw pattern so that if you accidentally bump into the center while icing the rest of the cake, it will not be messed up. In part, the depth difference between the fault line and the outside icing contributes to the visually appealing appearance of fault line cakes. Utilize a fairly thick application of icing so that it remains distinct from the core design even after it has been smoothed

How to Make a Fault Line Cake Step-by-Step

  1. Make your cake according to the recipe. Prepare your cake by stacking it, coating it with crumb coating, and chilling it before beginning your design. To create this pattern, you may use whatever sort of buttercream you choose.
  2. To make a rough indication of where you want the fault line to be, you may use a knife to sketch it out with a pencil.
  3. Decorate the fault line with a pattern of your choosing. I created a basic abstract design using the back of a spoon by dabbing little lumps of buttercream onto the cake. If you want to decorate your cake with sprinkles, fruit, or other embellishments, frost the middle of the cake with a thin layer of frosting to give your decorations something to adhere to.
  4. Refrigerate the cake until the pattern in the middle is totally set.
  5. The rest of the cake should be frosted with a fairly thick layer of buttercream. Apply the frosting solely to the borders of the central design, leaving the rest of the pattern unfrosted. Because you need to avoid the centre of the cake, I found it easier to use a piping bag for this stage. Smooth down the last coat of frosting using an offset spatula or a cake scraper. During the smoothing process, frosting will be pushed over the boundaries of your center design, resulting in the fault line appearance.
  6. Refrigerate the cake once more until the exterior icing is stiff.
  7. It is possible to complete decorating your cake at this point, or you can opt to add further embellishments to it. Many individuals opt to accentuate the fault line boundaries by painting them with a contrasting hue to draw attention to them. With a number 16 star tip, I piped little stars around the margins of my fault line to give it some dimension.

How To Make A Fault Line Cake

Creating a fault line cake is more easy than it appears, and it can be personalized to fit any event.I used to do a lot of cake decorating before I became interested in interior design.Not on a professional level, but simply for enjoyment.

  1. Before they reached high school, neither of my girls had ever eaten a store-bought birthday cake.
  2. The cakes were always elaborate, with a fun theme depending on what they were into at the time of the year’s celebration.
  3. In fact, I was successful in convincing my mother to join me in attending Wilton cake decorating lessons at Michael’s with me.
  4. I gained so much knowledge from the class!
  1. When the children were older, I shifted my focus to interior design, but I’ve been missing baking and cake designing ever since.
  2. When we were on vacation last year, I happened to see a fault line cake in a bakery and knew I had to try my hand at baking one.
  3. Because I finally got around to doing it last week, and because it turned out so well, I thought I’d share the process with you all.
  4. Fresh fruit, sprinkles, or piped frosting can be used as fault line filling, as can a variety of other decorations.
  5. Basically, anything that is edible is OK.

Strawberry preserves were what I had in mind for mine.

  • Wilton Cake Turntable (this one comes with both spatulas mentioned above)
  • Wilton Cake Pan (8-
  • Three boxes of cake mix
  • six cans of icing
  • strawberries (or other fruit of choice)
  • macaroons (or other topping of choice)
  • three dozen eggs
  • and three dozen eggs.

To begin, I baked three cakes in my 8-inch cake pan, one at a time, for a total of three hours.When it comes to this specific pan, I wrap it with bake even cake strips that have been soaked in water before baking.These aid with the leveling of the cake as it is baked.

  1. In addition, I have a cake leveler that I use to cut any sections where the cake does not come out level.
  2. You could also use a big kitchen knife for this purpose if you wanted to save time.
  3. After they had cooled, I used a 6-inch round cake cutter to divide ONE of the cakes into smaller halves.
  4. This will be the cake’s central layer, so plan accordingly.
  1. After that, I covered them all with a single coating of white icing to serve as a crumb coat.
  2. A crumb coat is a foundation coating of icing that is evident when crumbs are present.
  3. Following this procedure, I place them in the refrigerator overnight.
  4. Not for an extended period of time, but just long enough for the icing to firm up, is all that is required.
  5. After taking them out the next day, I found the crumb coat to be solid and I was able to add my subsequent coats of icing without worrying about the crumbs getting into it.

Because this was my first time baking this cake, I relied on a boxed cake mix and a can of frosting for convenience.It will necessitate a large amount of icing, so if you’re using canned, be sure you store up.I believe I used 5 or 6 cans total.

  1. The future me will create my own simple buttercream frosting from scratch instead.
  2. I’ll include the recipe at the end of this post for anyone who’s interested in seeing it.
  3. Due to the fact that I was unable to stop and take images while I assembled and decorated the cake with the strawberries and frosting, I created a short film to better demonstrate how I completed the task.
  4. As you can see, I used fresh icing to decorate the centre area of the cake and inserted the strawberries into it.
  5. In the following step, I added more layers of icing and spread it out to partially cover sections of the center (or fault line).
  6. One thing to keep in mind is that I had placed the strawberries in the freezer in order to keep them fresh until I was ready to create this dessert.
  1. After I pulled them out of the freezer and allowed them to begin to thaw, they were really mushy.
  2. Although I am unsure of the reason, I never freeze fruit.
  3. I was fortunate in that I had some fresh strawberries in the fridge, so I was able to make use of them.
  4. It is not recommended to use frozen vegetables.
  • After the frosting and strawberries were formed, I painted the ″fault line″ with gold cake paint to provide more depth and complexity.
  • It’s simple to apply with a paintbrush designed for cake decorating.
  • I used to have a huge collection of these from my cake designing days.
  • I walked around the margins of the fault line, as well as around the upper edge of the fault line.
  • It’s strangely satisfying to really paint on a cake using food coloring.
  • In the final phase, I added macaroons and flowers to the cake’s icing to make it seem more festive.

I used a piping bag to put frosting onto the cookies so that they could be stacked.Much though the fault line cake isn’t flawless, I have to admit that it turned out even better than I had planned!Seriously, I mean it!

  • There are a couple of things you should be aware of before you begin.
  • For starters, the top layer will be really heavy!
  • Keep in mind that icing should not be too thick or it may slide off.
  • Putting it in the refrigerator once it is finished will assist to avoid this.
  • The second point is that, with a cake this tall, you should definitely put some form of wooden dowels down the center to keep everything in place.
  • If you don’t, you run the danger of the top layer falling straight off your skin.
  • The next step is to soak any fresh berries in vinegar before using them in a recipe or in a basin of water before using them.
  • This will aid in the killing of any bacteria on the fruit and will allow it to persist for a longer period of time.
  • There is an alternate method of making this cake that does not require the middle section to be chopped.
  • The way it works is that you first decorate the fault line with icing and then cover it completely with icing all around it.
  • I’ll give it a shot the next time just for comparison.
  • I’m going to try it with sprinkles as a finishing touch.

I reasoned that if you were using strawberries or other fruit, you would have to use an enormous quantity of icing to obtain the fault line effect.Aside from that, I’m not sure that strategy would have quite the same impact on the audience as this one does.Listed below is a straightforward recipe for buttercream frosting.It is important to note that this recipe only generates 1/3 cup of frosting; you will want considerably more icing for a cake of this size.

Buttercream Frosting

  • One-third cup confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • half- teaspoon vanilla
  • one-fourth teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 3/4 cup confectioners sugar sifted
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

If desired, tint the mixture with food colors. This recipe makes a third of a cup. Save This For Later: This post may contain affiliate links; please see my full disclosure policy here for more information.

How to make a trendy fault line cake with fresh strawberries and buttercream frosting

Social media is currently awash with photos of fault line cakes, which are quite popular.So many different unique versions of this topic have already been submitted, ranging from sprinkles to flowers!One of the most appealing aspects of this cake trend is that it allows for a great deal of individual expression, although the fundamental methods for producing a fault line cake remain consistent.

  1. I believe this is the first iteration of the fault line cake, which was produced by Milk Moon Kitchen on Instagram, at least as far as I can determine.
  2. She’s been creating these stunning pieces since March of this year.
  3. In recent years, though, this trend has exploded, and we’re seeing all kinds of very inventive variations on it, such as this incredible tiger sprinkles cake from Susie Makes.
  4. In order to create the tiger design, she individually applied each of those sprinkles onto wafer paper using piping gel by hand!
  1. Then, before putting the final coat of buttercream, I wrapped the paper around the cake to protect it.
  2. It’s just amazing work!
  3. For example, Cutely Made’s exquisite rose fault-like dessert is a must-see.
  4. According to the inventor, this cake was created by sandwiching a 4 inch styrofoam cake fake between two 6 inch cakes.
  5. The flowers were then pressed into the styrofoam and the buttercream was poured over the top to create the fault line effect on the top of the cake.

Don’t be concerned; the roses are edible and were cooked in a manner that was not harmful to the consumer.When you stop to think about it, the options are truly unlimited!With the help of fresh strawberries, I’ll teach you how to bake my version of the fault line cake today!

  1. It’s a no-brainer when it comes to making a delicious and visually appealing summer cake.

How to keep berries fresh

When making a cake using fresh fruit, you must take some care to ensure that the fruit does not mold too rapidly after being cut.I’m sure we’ve all had the experience of purchasing a box of fresh fruit from the grocery store that looks beautiful one day and then turns out to be completely rotten the next.You’re going to give your fruit a quick soak in order to keep it from molding in the cake.

  1. In a large mixing basin, whisk together 4 cups chilled water and 1/2 cup white vinegar until well combined.
  2. Allow for around 5 minutes of soaking time for the fresh fruit.
  3. Place your berries in a colander and rinse them under cool water until they are completely dry before using.
  4. Don’t be concerned about your berries tasting like vinegar; the vinegar bath will not impart any vinegar flavor to them.
  1. It will, however, help to extend the life of your berries as well as destroy any mold that may be lurking around the corner from them.

How to stack and fill your fault line cake

The preparation of the cake is the first stage in creating the fault line cake.I’m using my own fresh strawberry cake for this recipe, but you may use any cake that you choose.I have two 6′′ cake layers and one 4′′ cake layer in my cake recipe.

  1. Each cake tier is 2 inches in height.
  2. My cakes have already been refrigerated, and the brown edges on the top, sides, and bottom of the cakes have been cut away.
  3. More information on prepping a cake for decorating may be found in my video on how to bake your first cake, which you can watch here.
  4. Begin by stacking your first 6′′ cake on a cake board to use as a base.
  1. If you wish, you may add a layer of strawberry puree before covering it with a coating of simple buttercream.
  2. I decided to cut my 4′′ cake layer in half to make it a little higher, then I cut it in half again.
  3. I also stuffed it with buttercream and strawberry puree to make it more festive.
  4. Let’s apply a quick crumb coat of buttercream to the cake before moving on to the next stage of the cake assembly.
  5. The cake can be chilled at this stage if you feel that your cake is too mushy and moving about too much, but I decided to go ahead and move on to the next step without chilling mine.

Stack the final 6′′ cake layer on top of the 4′′ cake layer and cover with a crumb coat to seal in the moisture.Place the entire cake in the freezer for 20 minutes to allow the cake to firm up a little bit more.While the cake is cooling, prepare some medium-sized strawberries by slicing them in half.

  1. Alternatively, you may use various sorts of fruits!
  2. Let’s get started on our fruit glaze as well.
  3. I’m using apricot jam, which I’ve thinned with a little water to make it a little thinner.
  4. In culinary school, I learnt how to glaze all sliced fruits in order to prevent them from drying out and to keep them looking bright and lovely.

How to create the fault line look with buttercream

  • As soon as the cake has been chilled, apply another thin coating of buttercream to the middle of the cake to make it easier to press the strawberries into the cake’s center. In a soft buttercream, press your strawberries into the mixture. Alternating between them will allow them to fit snugly next to one another. Let’s get started with the buttercream layering. Fill in any gaps in your top layer and smooth it out so it’s nice and level. After that, pipe some buttercream over the sides of the cake, but avoid covering the strawberries. It’s important to maintain the buttercream nice and thick so that it doesn’t scrape into the berries while serving. Begin smoothing the sides of the cake with a bench scraper to make them more even. Fill up any gaps or holes that may have occurred and continue to scrape until the surface is lovely and smooth. It is optional to paint the borders of the buttercream with gold paint, but it looks nice. My favorite was the Truly Made Plastics super gold, which I blended with a little Everclear alcohol to achieve the desired effect. For the finest coverage, you want the combination to be a thick, viscous liquid. This recipe calls for one teaspoon of gold dust blended with a few drops of alcohol till it’s just turned into liquid. I put my cooled cake to a cake stand and then stacked some additional fresh berries and leaves on top of the cake, as well as some blackberry leaves and edible flowers, to complete the look. That’s all there is to it! Other varieties of berries, sprinkles, sweets, or whatever else you choose to use may be made using these similar procedures. The options are virtually limitless!

What is a fault and what are the different types?

A fault is a fracture or a zone of fractures that separates two blocks of rock from one another.Deficiencies allow the blocks to move in relation to one another.Depending on the speed of the movement – such as an earthquake – or the speed of the movement (such as creep), the movement may be quick or gradual.

  1. Faults can be as short as a few millimeters in length or as long as hundreds of kilometers.
  2. The majority of faults cause recurring displacements throughout the course of geologic time.
  3. During an earthquake, the rock on one side of the fault slides abruptly with regard to the rock on the opposite side of the fault.
  4. The fault surface can be either horizontal or vertical, or any arbitrary angle in between, depending on the situation.
  1. Facial faults are classified in accordance with their angle of inclination relative to the surface (known as the dip) and their direction of slip (or movement) along the fault.
  2. Dip-slip faults are faults that move in the direction of the dip plane and are classified as either normal (normal thrust) or reverse (thrust) faults, depending on how they move.
  3. Strike-slip faults are faults that move horizontally and are classed as either right-lateral or left-lateral faults, depending on which direction they move.
  4. Oblique-slip faults are defined as faults that exhibit both dip-slip and strike-slip motion at the same time.
  5. The following definitions are drawn from Press and Siever’s The Earth, which may be found here.

When a typical fault occurs, the block above the fault has shifted downward in relation to the block below.This form of faulting occurs in reaction to extension and is commonly found in the Basin and Range Province of the Western United States as well as along oceanic ridge systems.Fault Animation in the Normal Mode A reverse (thrust) fault is a dip-slip fault in which the upper block, which is above the fault plane, travels up and over the lower block, causing the lower block to collapse.

  1. A typical kind of faulting is compression faulting, which may be found in situations where one plate is being subducted beneath another, such as the Japanese islands.
  2. The term ″thrust fault″ is frequently used to describe a reverse fault when the dip angle is shallow.
  3. Animation of a Thrust Fault Blind Thrust Fault is a type of fault that occurs when a vehicle is not seeing where it is going.
  4. Animation A strike-slip fault is a fault in which the two blocks move past one another while the other block remains stationary.
  5. The San Andreas Fault is an example of a fault that runs right across the fault plane.
  6. Animation of a Strike-Slip Fault As seen from either side, a left-lateral strike-slip fault has the displacement of the distant block to its left, indicating that the fault is not fully closed.
  1. Right-lateral strike-slip faults are faults on which the displacement of the distant block is to the right when seen from either side of the fault plane.

″bleeding″ Strawberries –

DelightsByE Posted on June 24, 2006, at 2:59 p.m.The fact that I make chocolate coated strawberries all the time has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of time they are washed or the method used to wash them.What it does have everything to do with is how they are prepared, on the other hand.

  1. On the exterior of the fruit, where the seeds are located, strawberries have a natural ″skin,″ if you will.
  2. It is their natural defense against the elements, since their seeds rely on their ability to germinate and grow into new mini strawberry plants when the inside of the berry is damaged or destroyed by the weather.
  3. Whenever this skin is broken in ANY manner, whether by cutting, slicing, or removing the top, or even by bruising or the tiniest scratch, the inside of the body is made vulnerable to whatever is coming into contact with it on the outside.
  4. If it happens to be sugar, or anything containing sugar, it will begin to break down the interior of the container, resulting in a large amount of juice being produced.
  1. When I was younger, I remember seeing a single strawberry create as much juice as a teaspoon all on its own.
  2. If you intend to have the strawberries sliced, you will need to macerate them first by tossing them with sugar and allowing them to juice their little hearts out for at least 4 hours, but ideally more like 6 hours.
  3. Room temperature is good, but the fridge is also fine.
