Cakes are evolving ever since its existence. The need for a cake has become far more common for several events today. They say that a cake is the centrepiece of an occasion, and we couldn’t disagree. A cake does not just serve the purpose of being the opening dessert but plays a far more vital role in cherishing the present moment. One can literally describe the theme of the party just by the look of their cake.
The reason why we bring to you this list of the most today is because you can have a set of expectations of what cakes from the future would look like and probably also plan your grand child’s first birthday cake (haha……. just kidding …)
The cakes on this list are either here on the basis of their concept or on the basis of their design. We looked up the Internet and found why they actually deserve big credit. It’s finally time to get in and take a look at what cakes from the future look like.

- Made by – Dinara Kasko
- Highlights – Use of 3d Printing to make her cakes look out of this world.
When you talk about futuristic cakes this baker and her wonderful creations can never be written off, One of the world’s first bakers to adopt 3d printing technology for commercial baking. The chef to make this masterpiece is none other than Dinara Kasko who is from Ukraine. She is 28 years old and is a pastry chef who combines geometrical shapes and architectural designs to create her artwork. She boasts of a staggering 645 k followers on her Instagram till date and is a true role model to futuristic cake ideas.
The cake takes inspiration from laser edged technology and looks very futuristic in itself. It’s baked in a special mould that allows it to have spaces in between the base for the red whipped cream to settle in. After the baking process, it is air sprayed with grey granule particles to give it the dark texture effect. We know a solid colour can stand out only when the background behind is dark, that’s exactly why the air spraying technique was used. Finally, the red cream/liquid fills the spaces between the base of the cake in order to complete the laser inspired chocolate block design.

- Made by- Cédric Grolet
- Highlights – A cake that gives you a different flavour with every bite into it.
Yeah! Not all of us are masters at solving Rubix cubes. But what about eating one? Not kidding but this cake is made in the form of a Rubix cube with each mini cube having a different flavour. (Paying something for 27 different flavours is simply excellent). It’s not just the flavours that excite us but also the architecture of the cake. Watch the 2-min Interview with Cedric Grolet one of the best pastry chefs in the world to understand why this piece has been added in the list of the most futuristic cake ideas.
This delectable treat consists of 27 individual cakes adjusted together to make this miracle cake. The treats boast about season pairings like apricot, rosemary, cherry and tarragon. Moreover, the cook overlooked the toy’s palette of essential hues and rather settled on increasingly exquisite shading plans. Some are unusual, some are unbiased, and one is even completely made out of a cake shrouded in a gleaming gold icing!
Let’s also look at how your dress could exactly match your futuristic wedding cake

- Made by- NA
- Highlights – A cake designed to exactly match your dress.
Now that’s way too futuristic to our eyes! How mesmerizing does it sound to have a cake perfectly arrayed to match your wedding or Birthday dress? This 4 Tier towering cake is way too beautiful to cut. Having the ability to craft and design a cake to match anything and everything is a rare and special talent, maybe that’s why we could not find who the real Baker to this cake is.
This is a 4 tier wedding cake with a black layer sitting on top of three layers of white fondant. As seen in the picture the black vertical lines run throughout it in the same way the lines run on the dress of the model. (just awestruck with the detailing) It is then characterized with phoenix themed feathered props which we don’t know if it’s edible or not. In the end at the bottom sits a brown base in order to represent the thighs of the model. Futuristic cake ideas cannot be any better.
When a cake floats and glows at the same time, you know it has to be a futuristic cake idea
1) Sliced Illumination cake

- Made by – Avalon cakes
- Highlights – Floating slices and illumination within the cake absolutely make it a winner.
Creativity and hard work are the two absolute terms that define this beauty. A tree trunk themed cake that floats. We have no idea as to how the slices have been suspended and floating in the middle of the cake, let alone leave the idea of the glow We do know it’s going to be very expensive and it rightfully takes the number one spot on our list.
The scales that run across the cake give it a realistic look almost ending up like a cake that matches the scales of a reptile. Moreover, the illumination just adds to its overwhelming look and definitely makes it a bake from out of this world. GOT fans maybe drooling.
What do we think about all these futuristic-looking cakes?
