After number cake, ruffle cake, drip cake, and geode cake, fault line cake is the trendy cake design of the year 2019. For those of you who don’t know it yet, the fault line cake is a cake that looks as if it has been torn off part of its wall to reveal its interior. This fascinating cake creates a lot of surprises for those who taste it.
Principle of a fault line cake
The first thing to do is to make a high sponge cake or sponge cake high. After it has cooled, put icing on the whole cake, as you like. Then put the cake in the refrigerator.
Take the cake out of the fridge and cover the middle part of the cake with another icing, or buttercream, to secure the decorations that will make the cake look like a fault line cake. To give the appearance of torn wallpaper, make an imperfect line.
After that, put the decorations you have planned, fruit, macaroons, or candy or chocolate flakes. You can use whatever you want and whatever you like. Cover the rest of the sides of the cake with icing of the same colour as the one at the very beginning. This will give you a fault line cake.
Some tips for making a fault line cake
The first trick is to choose a cake high enough to make a fault line cake, especially if you are new to this type of cake. This will make it easier to make the line. You will have a wider space, so more options in the fillings.

The fourth tip is to make a thinner icing for the line. This way the fault line of the cake will be highlighted.
