The obsession for glittery and shinny galaxy colours is growing with each passing day. The trend has already taken over the fashion world and is now spreading its wing in the food industry too. In shades of sparkly violet, blue and black with tinge of pink and teal, this trend is here to stay – with popsicles to wedding cakes.
Recently, an Ohio-based bakery called, Darling Delights made a wonderful wedding cake on a bride’s request and it went viral, tempting people to try out such designs. Other than cupcakes, cookies custom-made by the bakery became an internet sensation. We think the cosmic effect has left people mesmerised.
“The galaxy effect was created using an airbrush, and beneath the thin layer of fondant is a layer of buttercream which continues throughout each layer of the cake,” reports the Bored Panda.
Recent trend shows that food artists around the world have been recreating the cosmic effect in various foods. From donuts, macaroons to ice-creams and the very recent galaxy dips, people just cannot have enough of this out-of-the-world look.
Few months ago the world went crazy seeing the first ever galaxy donuts on Instagram inquiring about the recipe and the secret to master the glittery effect. Instagrammer and Melbourne-based baker Sam came to rescue and posted the recipe along with her own vegan galaxy donuts. Sam said she had made the galactic treats for her sick boyfriend.
The way to make a donut is known but what people really wanted to know was how did she accomplish the ‘galaxy’ effect? “This is quite hard to explain, but if you’ve ever done marbling as a kid using coloured dye it is essentially the same thing,” wrote Sam in her Instagram post. “Simply dip and twirl a donut halfway into the icing and gently slide it out and you’ll get that ‘galaxy effect’,” she added.
