Birthday cake. Wedding cake. Whatever. Who doesn't love it? But cake doesn't last forever. That's why the impermanence, the Wabi-sabi of it, is almost the best part. The bakers of these cakes made these not only for other people, but with the knowledge that their creation would be destroyed for the sake of dessert. It requires a lot of love.
There are some truly talented individuals out there. Bakers are often overlooked as artists, but every now and then we get a glimpse of just how intricate and creative something as timeless as a cake can get. Combining video games and baking is no easy task, but these bakers did it.
Here's a list of those creative and fun cakes, although I wish I could include a runner's up sub-section because there are so many great ideas from novices as well.
There's no telling if these tasted good, but we can still awe in their sculpting and culinary ability to make little perishable works of happiness.
