The skill of pastry chef and author Heather Baird becomes evident, when you see a spider cake and think it’s not really that creepy. It could even be called adorable! My unreasonable thoughts on spiders aside, these cookies and cakes are really quite adorable. Heather’s cakes have earned quite a following on Instagram, a very successful blog, and a book.
Somethings come into existence just to make everybody happy, much like this Pizza Cake. PizzaCake is one of the innovations by Canadian chain Boston Pizza. They have an ongoing competition with several entries, the winner of which will be made into a real product. Really, there are quite a few great products waiting to happen on that list. We’d rather have several of them be real, but if it has to be a choice, the answer is PizzaCake.
Testing times come when you should be eating proper food but all you really want to eat is cake. This won’t solve the problem, but it will make the decision a hell lot easier.

Now that doesn’t look quite delectable, and we are not going to assume that it is, but this ashtray cake certainly is edible.

These Lego Minifigs perfectly look their part, but except from being made out of plastic, they’re made of deliciousness and intend to make things delicious.

Forget zombies eating brains, we’re going to chow on this zombie because he promises to be delicious, and that would be enough to get over the realistic horrendous looks of the zombie.

Sarah Downham of Kiss & Bake Up made these Star Wars inspired cake pops that we’re pretty sure have the sweet sweet goodness of and geekiness of Star Wars. They’re pretty neat and detailed. Han Solo in carbonite looks particularly good.
