20th August 2010 – I love cakes and today I treated myself and my colleagues to a nice box selection of pastries and cup cakes from my local cupcakery.  I was drawn to them on the way to work through the bakery window that tempts me every time I walk past because they look so sweet and delicious.

While I was in there I noticed an amazingly designed wedding cake which was truly a baked piece of art and now I seemed to have grown quite a fondness for fondant design!

Cakes and cupcakes seem to be more popular than ever at the moment and with some very talented bakers out there, there is always some brightly coloured sponge masterpiece on display in a shop window. It seems a shame to have to eat them after all the effort that was put into them. So take a gander at some of these creative cake designs and you definitely can… have your cake and eat it!

  3. the oreo cake looked like it was covered in tar. :\ they’re cool to look at but I wouldn’t eat them…

  4. In the one with the pond and sign, the sign looks like it says Fisting… just saying. Beautiful cakes btw 🙂

  5. Most were cool but a couple didn’t belong in this list, like the pink one with the rocking horse, I’ve seen a A LOT better than that.

  6. Hi I’d really like to know what bakeries these cakes came from. I clicked the photos like you said but I didn’t see any bakery source.

  7. Some of these look amazing, but others would be perfect candidates for cakewreks.com. The 10th one down in particular.

  8. OMG. I loved these cakes i wonder how they made them. That capsules one at the 3rd place followed by the iphone one were the best ones. Im Dazzled 🙂

    Great work Gabriella

  9. Good stuff, thanks for posting. I was actually looking for something else and this site came up lol. Oh well, 2 minutes of my life gone! Totally worth it though!

  10. fore sure superb site and theme. Hopefully I’m not disturbing you I just sought to inquire precisely what wordpress plugin you use to show the latest remarks on your blog? I want to do something similar for my free iphone website but I cannot get the plugin or widget for it. Thank you for your time 🙂

  11. the johnny cupcakes suitcase one is my fav, but thats just because i love johnny cupcakes. lol the octopus is a close second.

  12. I saw the book cake in person. It was made by Charm City Cakes for Bound to Stay Bound’s 50th birthday at the American Librarian Association conference in DC. It tasted better than it looks. I got the first slice and the first glass of champagne that accompanied and it was amazing.

  13. Very nice website. I just finished mine and I was looking for some design ideas and you gave me a few. May I ask you whether you developed the website by youself?
