We don’t usually associate looking at shoes with feeling ravenously hungry, but that changed as soon as we set eyes on these mouthwatering cake and ice cream heels handmade by the Shoe Bakery. They may not be edible, but they are completely wearable.

Cake is awesome. No matter where you are, what day it is, time it is, what you’re wearing or what the weather is like, it’s always a good time for cake. And besides just eating it ourselves, giving cake to someone else is also awesome. You can use it to wish them a happy birthday, congratulate them, cheer them up or simply say, “I think you’re swell.” But giving someone cake isn’t always that simple. Perhaps they’re far away. Cake doesn’t generally make it through the mail unharmed.
But wait, Sandra Denneler of SheKnows.com has come up with an amazing way to send a mouthwatering slice of cake to anyone anywhere - or at least anywhere the mail goes. And thanks to her DIY
recipe tutorial, you can do it too. Sanda calls these creations Cake Postcards. They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get crushed or spoil:
"Imagine how happy and excited you’d be, if you went to your mailbox one day and pulled out a slice of cake. Now you can surprise friends and family (and probably even your mail carrier), with this three-dimensional, mailable postcard, cleverly disguised as cake. With only five ingredients in this crafty recipe — a large sponge, spray paint, caulk, spray adhesive and heavy paper — it’s a piece of cake. Literally. Postage is around $3 per slice, but the reaction from the recipient will be priceless."

Texas-based artist and Instructables contributor tchitwood created this awesomely gruesome Walking Dead Zombie Cake. She modeled the cake after one of special effects creator, director, and actor Greg Nicotero’s own appearances on The Walking Dead. He’s thoroughly revolting to behold, but being made of nothing but cake, frosting, and hand-painted fondant, we’re sure he’s completely delicious.

What’s better than toast? How about scrummy pieces of toast (or a slice of cake) served with a custom-made syrup drawing? That’s precisely what’s on the menu at an anime, comic book, and video game shop in Seoul, South Korea called the Saboten Store: awesome pop culture syrup art.
"Saboten, which means "cactus" in Japanese, opened early last year and was founded by a gentleman named Kyung Chul Han, who used to work as a video game journalist and as a game developer at NCsoft.”
Along with an order of cake or toast and a beverage, customers may request any character they’d like to see rendered in sweet syrup for roughly US$8. The skilled staff, who cosplay while working, seem more than able to rise to any style or character challenge.
Head over to Kotaku for many more photos of the amazing syrup portraits at Saboten Store.
This spectacular Green Dragon Cake was created by a very talented Canadian baker named Rita at the Touché Touchet bakery in Columbia, Maryland. Large enough to feed 50 people, every inch of the cake is edible. The dragon’s skull and free-standing spines were made using chocolate. Everything else is cake and icing and it all looks ferociously delicious.

Last year Annabel de Vetten, the baking maven behind the Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here), created an entire Christmas dinner, roast turkey and all the trimmings, using cake.The dinner was prepared for a 2012 Imperial Fringe event called the Imperial College ‘A Feast for the Sciences’. The Imperial Fringe is an ongoing series of free public events exploring the unexpected side of science at the Imperial College of London.
Annabel made the entire meal by hand in only a few hours using sponge cake, chocolate, buttercream frosting, marzipan, and edible paint. The gravy was made of chocolate caramel sauce and the wine was fruit-flavoured gelatin. Even the candles, created by Cake For Breakfast, were made of solid chocolate.
The idea behind the sweet dinner was that visitors to the exhibition would eat it - but in typically British fashion, people were too polite to touch the art, much less take great bites out of it. Annabel said: ‘We took the dinner along to the exhibition for people to eat but to begin with everybody was a bit shy about trying tucking in. Once the first person tried a bit though, everybody else joined in and it was gone within 30 minutes.’
We think the mere idea of cake for dinner is great, so this awesome holiday spread is a spectacular feat of edible art. Click here for more photos.
