Forget the Black Forest cake your mom bought you for your birthday, or the simple white multi-layered wedding cake on your special day. These cakes are so awesome you don’t even want to eat them.

Cake sculpting first began as a hobby and is now a full-fledged career option with artists competing for creativity and cake prices climbing a never ending ladder.

Here are 20 examples of some of the most creative cake sculptures you’d never want to cut.

    Generally, I hate the look of an octopus but not in this case. Unbelievable!

    How about crediting the artists that create them instead of just generating impression income off of their work without attribution?

      Hi, I don’t really know if you read the text next to each photo but I credited all the artists when known and asked their permission to use their photos. Many of these shots are also under creative commons and all photographers are linked in the description.

    The unicorn cake is wonderful but i am wondering, how do you get it to support itself considering it is only standing on two legs and a tail? is it all made of cake?
