We at Alippo have brought to you a brand new live workshop on how to make Gravity Defying cakes! They are also called Anti Gravity cakes. If you're a cake enthusiast or just someone who loves to try out new and exciting things, this workshop is for you. 

But first, let's answer the question on everyone's mind: what are Anti Gravity cakes? Anti gravity cakes are those types of cakes that appear to defy gravity and float above their base. These types of cakes incorporate unique designs and techniques that make them stand out from traditional cakes. 

Now that we know what anti gravity cakes are, let's take a look at the top 5 anti gravity cake designs that are sure to inspire you in 2023. These cake designs are not only impressive, but they also show just how creative you can be with this unique cake decorating style. 

Floating Cake

The first design we'll explore is the Floating Cake. This design features a cake that appears to be floating in the air, supported by a hidden structure. To create this design, you will need a base cake and a support structure.

Steps to make the floating cake:

  1. To begin, bake and assemble your base cake as you normally would. 
  2. To create this effect, bakers use dowels or other supports to hold the cake layers in place, and then decorate the supports to give the illusion of a floating cake. 

The floating cake design can be customised with different types of cake and frosting flavours, as well as decorations such as flowers, fruits, or candy.
