15 Cakes You Won't Believe Are Really Cakes

"Amazing cakes, how sweet the taste ... that made me gain so much weight! I once was small, but now I'm large, and cakes have filled my plate.

For anyone who has ever struggled on a diet, cake has often been the cause of their demise. Maybe it's because we usually get our first taste of cake at our first birthday, which indelibly links this treat in our mind with happy memories. Cake, when made well, is simply delicious all on its own, but when you add frosting, fillings, toppings, and the psychological impact of years of happy memories centered around cake, it's no wonder that most people simply can't seem to resist a slice when it's offered to them.

All this isn't even taking into consideration the ways in which cakes are also a visual medium, and cake decorators take a lot of pride in their craft! 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

Cake Style

This gorgeous cake looks just like a rose, and uses modeling chocolate instead of fondant to create those flawless petals.

What kind of sorcery is this?

3. Tiger Stripes

Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio

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.

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.
