Kitchtastic pop culture humorist Charles Phoenix (previously featured here) has promoted breakfast cereal from humdrum to awesome with the creation of this magnificently overindulgent Six-Layer Milk Soaked Cereal Cake with Frosted Flakes Frosting. Sugary cereals were a rare treat when we were little and we pretty much always want cake, so this towering fusion of the two is blowing our minds.

Here are the paired cereal and cake layer flavors from top to bottom:

  • Apple Jacks with Spice Cake
  • Trix with Blue Velvet Cake
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Yellow Cake
  • Peanut Butter Crunch with Chocolate Cake
  • Froot Loops with Red Food Colored White Cake (Red Velvet Cake was not BRIGHT enough!)
  • Cocoa Puffs with White Cake

The entire thing is covered in vanilla Frosted Flakes frosting and decorate with pieces of all the cereals used in the cake’s six layers.

So much cereal. So much cake. SO much sugar. We might swoon.

More cake please! London-based food artist Michelle Wibowo of Michelle Sugar Art (previously featured here) recently created the world’s first completely edible billboard, made entirely out of cake. The mouthwatering advertisement for Mr Kipling, the UK’s largest cake manufacturer, measures 6m x 3m (~20ft x 10ft) and consists of 13,360 Mr Kipling cakes. Wibowo spent 6 hours assembling her creation the night before its unveiling.

Bearing a message we couldn’t agree with more - “Life is Better with Cake” - the billboard hangs outside the Westfield Shopping Centre in the Shepherd’s Bush, London. Here’s the best part: after the billboard was unveiled, it was gleefully devoured by lucky passersby, one tasty cake at a time.

Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.

If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.

Visit The Shoe Bakery’s website to check out more of their enticingly iced footwear.

This exquisitely, scrumptiously detailed Library Cake was made by Kathy Knaus. One side features the entrance to the brick library building, flanked by potted plants. The other side reveals the library’s cozy interior, complete with countless books lining its double-decker shelves, a large globe, and a wonderfully cluttered reading table accented with gum drop lamps.
Libraries are awesome places and cake is one of the best things ever, so this sweet, edible library is extra-mega-super-duper awesome.

Don’t run away! This particular “Nightmare in Silver" is 100% edible and not the least bit interested in destroying all life on earth. This Cyberman is an awesome cake made by Happy Occasions Cakes, a bespoke bakery located in Cwmbran, Wales. While we understand that the existence of this geektastic cake creates a distinct conflict between the Whovian survival instinct and sweet tooth, we’re pretty sure our overwhelming love of cake would triumph in the end.

This adorable little hedgehog was made using almonds, eggs, cream, sugar and then even more almonds. We love him, not just because he’s so cute, but because he was created using a recipe that was written all the way back in 1817. Think about that for a second. What that means is that even 200 years ago people were coming up with novelty treats and edible sculptures shaped like ridiculously cute animals.
The recipe comes from a book entitled Treatise on Confectionary, written by Joseph Bell. Here it is:

To make a Hedge Hog.
Take 1lb. Valentia almonds; blanch and beat them very fine, with a little rose water; mix in the yolks of six eggs; whisk up the whites of four eggs very stiff; mix all together, with half a pint of cream, and sweeten it with beat sugar to your taste; set the whole in a stew pan on a clear fire, and stir it till it is thick enough to model into the shape of a hedge hog; put a small currant for each eye, and stick it all over with cut almonds for the bristles of the hedge hog; then set it on a dish, and pour over it a rich custard.

It’s actually possible that this recipe is even older still. It may be a reprint from this 1747 source. So the next time you find yourself daydreaming about 18th/19th century banquets, as we know some of you sometimes do, don’t forget to include the ornamental, edible almond hedgehog.

Elizabeth Marek of the Artisan Cake Company (previously featured here) created this incredibly awesome pair of Father’s Day Cakes for her husband’s very first Father’s Day. That’s right, both the half-barrel full of ice and bottled beer as well as the double-decker cheeseburger are completely edible cakes.

The half-barrel is a marble cake made with Oreo cookies and cream filling. The ice and the bottles were made using isomalt from simi cakes. Stay tuned to Marek’s YouTube channel for a forthcoming tutorial. There will also be a burger cake tutorial available via the Artisan Cake Company webstore.

The Department of Impossible Cuteness needs to create a subdepartment devoted to food so outrageously adorable you wouldn’t just have a hard time bringing yourself to eat it, you might actually want to keep it as a pet.

Such is the case with these kawaii chick-shaped custard puddings from, you guessed it, Japan, specifically the city of Nagoya, which is in the center of the country. They’re available at Café Gentiane Leger, located inside Nagoya’s railway station.

The darling dessert consists of a traditional Purin, which is a caramel custard, topped with vanilla mousse that’s styled to resemble a happy little chick. The beak, wings and crown are made using slivers of white chocolate and they’re often fitted with a few other adorable edible details depending on the season.

"A cute dessert needs a cute name, and the café settled on Piyorin, a combination of “piyo piyo” (the sound of a chick chirping, in Japanese) and “purin.
