Amazing Cakes!

Hello everyone,
First - I apologize for being "absent" for almost two weeks. I sometimes get so busy with my "regular" job that I get behind in my blogging.

Today I'm sharing more incredible cakes made by some pretty amazingly talented people. I admire people who can create these works of art so much!  The first two cakes were made by someone I know very well - my sister! She got the cooking (and baking) genes in our family!

This is a Barbie cake my sister made for her granddaughter's 9th birthday.


This is a cheeseburger cake she made for her grandson's 12th birthday. Yes - that's really a cake!  Isn't it awesome?  Her grandson loved it - as you can see!


These "books" are really cakes! A friend of mine that works in a library sent this photo to me. They were made for a co-worker that was retiring. I would never have known they weren't real books!




The following cakes were made by Arty Cakes in Manchester, England. I think they're just incredible! All those flowers! That's a LOT of icing, but so beautiful! Arty Cakes website can be found HERE.

...and these are a few more fabulous cakes I found on Google images.



How about you? Are you a talented baker?

When I saw the caption below your link, I said, "nah!"

Those are some awesome cakes. My fave is the 2-layer cake of bright flowers. I took a cake decorating course years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Made some interesting cakes and had a friend/neighbor who always bought cakes for her office. Made my brother's wedding cake too . . .sure wish I had photos of that one! (Never have been able to get him to give me a picture!) :(

Enjoyed my visit!! Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Oh my goodness how clever and beautiful. I so love them all,but the blue with the roses is I think a little teensy bit more my favourite,because I'm a sucker for anything roses. xx

Happy Pink Saturday Cindy, WOW those are gorgeous cakes! How can you eat such amazing pieces of art? lol I agree with another comment that your sister's cakes are the winners. Besides being so creative they were made with love. The hamburger is awesome. Joyous wishes and hugs, Linda
PS. My daughter just came home with six cupcakes from a local bakery. The owner was a winner on Cupcake Wars. They have simple decorations but each one is a unique flavor. They are in a Pink box. Need I say more?

Hi Cindy,
Amazing cakes.
I always wanted to decorate cakes..but...I have a heavy hand and thick petals are not a good look.
Thank you for showing these masterpieces.
I particularly like your sister's hamburger cake.
Have a good week
