These Adorable Cookies and Cakes are a Treat for the Eyes

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.

These vegan cakes have beautiful Mandala toppings

So you made a vegan cake. How do you decorate it? With intricately designed Mandalas of course, nothing gets the meaning across faster, while looking so beautiful. Made by Chef Stephen McCarty, the cakes are made from vegan ingredients and decorated with exquisite mandalas. The chef makes these cakes under the name of Sukhavati Raw Desserts. Mandalas generally require a wide variety of colors to be executed just right. McCarty makes use of completely edible plant and food extracts that not only provide color, but also add a nice flavor to the cakes.
