About Cake Mapping

Cake Mapping Specifics (click to open/close)

Cake Mapping is a method of projecting text, images or video on to layers of a cake. The image can be mapped to cover all tiers of the cake, specific tiers, specific areas on a tier or side layer. In most instances, the cake is multi-tiered, square with (4) four or more layers and it has a plain white exterior.

There are suggested sizes to each tier for optimal viewing of projected footage. Small cakes have less of a display area to show content and the message and detail get lost. Round cakes are possible to map too; however, more work is required due to the curve on each rounded tier vs a finite edge on a square cake. Cost is incurred for more time to map the endless curves and for a second projector to combat the 180 degrees of a round cake that narrows the angle to two 90-degree angles. Because the rounded angles cause issues with some images, square cake is the method for best practice and visual success.

The cake structure can be real, partially real or fake/dummy. For optics, the top tier is real for the purpose of cutting a slice at a wedding or special event. The lower layers are fake or dummy layers made out of foam to support the structure size. These fake layers are covered to match the real layer exterior.

It is for this reason, we work with a specific baker who understands the mapping process and can advise for the best structure of the mapped cake and additional cake to be served to guests.
