You Need to See This Magical Levitating Wedding Cake
The U.K. is seriously stepping up its baking game. From crafting a life-size Prince George cake (a confection leagues ahead of our own homage to the little royal) to harnessing the power of Yoda and making layers levitate, British bakers are killing the cake scene.
Designed by Christine Jensen of the Cornwall-based company Peboryon Cakes, this masterful display made its debut at the Cake International Show in the U.K., the biggest show for sugar artistry, cake decorating, and baking in the world. It's a totally outlandish set-up that shows off both Jensen's sculptural and wedding cake styles "using a bit of the Force," as she told SWNS. The Star Warstribute is mesmerizing even to those who aren't fans of the Sci-Fi saga. Because it's literally floating. (And, in my opinion, it totally crushes that video-mapped wedding cake that went viral this summer.)
If you're still trying to wrap your brain around the structure of this crazy creation, let us help.We think the baking team used electromagnets here to make the top layer hover above its fellow tiers. This would work by using the repelling force of two magnets' like poles—either both north or both south sides of each magnet. Because electromagnets can be very strong and push one another away completely, the weight of that top tier is helping to keep it in place.
There is also no friction occurring, so once set into motion, the top magnet will continue to turn, which explains the cake's slow spin. Check out this electromagnet demonstration to see it for yourself:
For those of you who are upset with us for demystifying the magic, we're sorry. We couldn't help ourselves. It wasreallygoing to bother us until the end of time if we didn't figure it out—or at least make our best guess.
