Let Them Eat Cake!

I happened to watch the Cupcake Wars the other night.  The four competitors were vying for the chance to create a 1000 cupcake display in celebration of the Ace of Cakes' party to celebrate their 100th show.  Amazing cupcakes were created, and then a big display, and finally there was a winner.  It got me thinking about the Ace of Cakes and some of the other shows that create amazing cakes.  Then I got looking for unusual cakes and found this website toxel.com which had some interesting cakes displayed and I thought I they would make a sweet post!



First there was an Avatar cake....great if you're hosting an Avatar party at your home!



Then there was the Bacon-Lover's cake.  All that's missing is the scrambled eggs and toast!




Then there's the I-Pod Touch cake.... perfect choice for the techie in the family!



This Turkey Cake might be perfect for Thanksgiving, or for a member of the family who is one!


 A Pair of Nikes for the athlete in the family might score a few points!


 I have to say, I'd rather have a real pizza than a Pizza Cake, but to each his own.



This is the only sushi I would consider eating....Sushi Cake!



 And if someon out there is all atwitter about Twitter, here's the Twitter Cake--a sweet tweet!



For the guy who loves his junk food, a Hot Dog Cake...loaded with tomatoes, onions, relish and mustard!


For the photography buff:  A Cannon Camera Cake!


Maybe a seafood lover would dive into this Giant Red Squid Cake?  It made me a little squeamish!

I marvel at the creativity and patience required to come up with these concoctions!  Which is your favorite?

I love the sushi cake... how adorable... My sister is getting married in June and she was looking for ideas for a grooms cake.. I'm so showing her the NIKE cake....hugs

The most delectable is the sushi cake, but the one I like the best is the camera cake. These are all pretty wonderful, but it would be hard to eat a hot dog cake, I think.

The camera and the sneakers are cute. I'd have a hard time eating a cake that looked like bacon or sushi, or even pizza for that matter! My pizza has to taste like pizza, damn it!

Ratz: Good choices!

Steven: I saw on that episode of the Cupcake Wars, they made a Chcolate cupcake with peanut butter frosting and put bacon pieces on it~!

Glen: They are almost too pretty to eat.

My mom decorated cakes and made many a Weddin' cake but what these artists do with cake is just beyond the imagination. Just mind boggling!

God bless and have a super fun day!!!
