 This Video of Geode Cookies Is Mesmerizing

If you have a sweet tooth, we’ve got the video for you.

Los Angeles–based baker Cat Byrne, the owner and operator of Cup My Cakez, makes delicious agate-slice sugar cookies. The gem- or rock-inspired baking trend is huge right now, and Cup My Cakez was kind enough to share these magical geode cookies with us.

You don’t need to be a gemologist to recognize how gorgeous they are. Like real gems and crystals, they’re one of a kind, as Cat hand-paints each sugar cookie using natural dye-colored frosting. She even brushes the edges with edible 24-carat gold (!). Take a look:

And they taste even better than they look. Swoon.

Geode cookies are often made with sanding sugar, edible glitter, and rock candy to recreate the gem-like pattern.

This recipe uses gluten-free flour and organic sweetener and can accommodate most allergen-sensitive people. But best of all—making these cookies will not support the suffering of any animals. From cookies and cakes to brownies and more, vegan baking can be easy. Simply use an egg replacer, dairy-free butter, and almond, soy, cashew, or another dairy-free milk.

See how easy—and mesmerizing—eating vegan can be? Yum.
