Here are 15 prime examples of cakes that are just as much a feast for the eyes as they are for our bellies.
1. Rose Cake
This gorgeous cake looks just like a rose, and uses modeling chocolate instead of fondant to create those flawless petals.
2. Pouring Candy
What kind of sorcery is this?
3. Tiger Stripes
That is absolutely wild!
4. This Little Piggy …
… looks too cute to eat! Awwww!
Little chocolate buttons planted into the frosting give the illusion of hedgehog spikes. Bonus: mouth full of candy instead of spikes.
6. Tree Stump
Has the search for your next cool cake idea got you stumped? Stop barking up the wrong tree and check out this cake.
7. Pizza Cake
What’s better than pizza pie? Pizza cake, obviously!
8. Starbucks Frappuccino
Wow, it looks JUST like an actual frap – and probably still costs less than the real thing.
9. Burmese Python
If I walked into a room and saw that staring back at me, I’d probably stab it with a knife anyway, so it’s a good thing it’s made out of cake.
10. Back To School
That’s certainly one way to get kids psyched up for the new school year!
11. Gus’s House
This replica of Gus’s house from Disney/Pixar’s Up is perfect, right down to every little detail. All it needs is some balloons!
12. Cinderella’s Carriage
If you’re more into the classic Disney fare, though, then check out this ode to Cinderella.
13. Stacked Books
I know a couple of bookworms who would love to get a cake like this for their birthdays.
14. Vanity Dresser
The level of detail here is so impressive that this is almost too pretty to eat.
15. Flag Cake
USA! USA! USA! USA!
