16 Crazy Realistic Cakes That’ll Make You Do a Double Take

We had so much fun compiling our wackiest wedding cake roundup that we just had to create another post dedicated to all the awesome cake art out there. This time, it’s all about the hyper-realistic cake. You know, like the hamburger cake that actually looks like a McDonald’s hamburger? These 16 cakes look like they could be something else entirely, but don’t worry; there’s still tons of sweet stuff inside. Get ready to be wowed.

1. Nikon Camera: This realistic cake is certainly photo-ready, wouldn’t you say? And the red velvet inside looks just as good as the perfectly sculpted outside. (via Fancy)

2. Asparagus Cake: We’ve just found our favorite bunch of asparagus. When you cut into it, there’s chocolate cake and thick layers of rich buttercream inside. (via Cheezburger)

3. Giraffe: We never knew we wanted a giraffe cake, but now we do. This awesomely shaded giraffe head even has neck wrinkles. (via Cake Central)

4. Cactus Cupcakes: You know we’re all about these succulent-inspired treats. The gravel-y cupcake topping was the perfect touch. (via Geekologie)

5. Sandwich: The tallest sandwich we’ve ever seen, complete with ruffled potato chips, is actually a cake. We’re not mad at it. (via Beautiful Life)

6. Banana: A giant banana cake? That’s hilar. (via Buzzfeed)

7. Bag of Bagels: We spy a salt bagel, a rye bagel and… is that a poppy seed one? But don’t break out the schmear just yet, because that’s a cake! (via Charm City Cakes West)

8. Terrier Cupcakes: We can almost hear them barking. Almost. (via The Cupcake Blog)

9. Jupiter: The marbled effect of this cake is spectacular, and the colorful sphere layers are just out of this world. (Pun intended.) (via The Kitchn)

10. Up House: We can’t even begin to express how happy we are that someone captured the pure magic of the Up house in cake form. Take us with you, Mr. Frederickson! (via Better Homes & Gardens)

11. 3D Hamburger: Seriously? The “cheese” looks like it’s actually melting. (via Cake Stories)

12. Chocolate Kiss Cupcakes: Well, we are officially craving chocolate Kisses now, but we guess cake will do. (via The Tomkat Studio)

13. Dropped Ice Cream: We’re glad this ice cream was dropped right on top of a cake. Oh wait, it’s part of the cake. (via Buen Finde)

14. Banana Split: Scotts must be one pretty awesome dude to score a cake like this. It’s all about the details, always. (via Beautiful Life)

15. Chocolate Cup Cake: A hot chocolate cup cake? We love how punny this is. (via Buzzfeed)

16. Rose Cupcakes: These are the most perfect frosting roses we have ever seen. (via Colin Cowie Weddings)
