That’s a Cake? Cakes that don’t look like Food

Cakes that don’t look like food always surprise me when I see them.

I spent a short period of my life, when my daughter was young decorating cakes.  I had a set of Wilton cake decorating tips and a few magazines and made a fancy cake each year for her birthday.

But never once did someone say “That’s a cake?” in astonishment. 

These ideas change all that. They are so realistic, it’s hard to believe that they are edible!

Round up of creative cakes - hard to believe these are all cakes! Cakes that don't look like food.

Cakes That Don’t Look Like Food. Is that a cake?

Well, my decorating tips are long gone, but when I see cakes like these, it is hard for me to believe that they are actually cakes.
