We've all seen some terrible wedding trends come and go -- remember this one?

Instead of traditional white cakes, brides all over the internet are opting for something a bit more edgy -- literally.

Allow us to introduce you to the geode cake.

This photo of Intricate Icings' purple geode cake went viral earlier this year, according to Cosmopolitan, and since then the cake style has exploded all over Instagram.

Baker Rachael Teufel revealed on Facebook,"The geode is made from rock candy that I then crafted with modeling chocolate, hand painting, and gold leaf."

Once people got wind of the clever creation, others started making their own versions -- and even took things to the next level. Click through to see some of the amazing wedding cakes that have come from this colorful craze.
