In our ongoing effort to bring you the most awesome cakes we can find, we’re please to present the work of English baker Louise Caola, another cunning and creative baker who devotes her energy to creating cakes that don’t look like cakes at all. Instead they look like dinners of beautifully marbled roast beef, grilled steak and chips, burritos, sausages and mash, roast chicken, fish sticks, and pizza, to name a few.
"The 23-year-old designed her first sausage and potato mash cake for a friend’s birthday and received praises from everyone who got to see it before it was devoured, which fueled her passion for novelty desserts. She immediately started working on even more impressive cakes in her free time and posted photos of them on social networks like Twitter and Instagram. Soon Louise was flooded with orders from all over the internet and she started taking her hobby more seriously.
A few weeks ago, the amateur baker finally decided to quit her job and focus all her attention on her newly-created novelty cake brand called Poppy & Lulu (after a couple of close childhood friends). For the time being she only offers hand-delivery around London, but hopes to one day expand nationwide and have a team of bakers helping her make fun cakes.”
Louise’s edible creations take up to four hours to make, Achieving such convincing results involves lots of trial and error, but we’re willing to bet that those errors are still delicious.
"From that day forward, Captain Gloucester never left port without a double sardine special"
We love this new piece of chalk street art by Ann Arbor, Michigan-based artist David Zinn, aka Sluggo (previously featured here). If you ever encounter a sea monster, we hope you’re also ready to offer him some piping hot pizza.

Miss Cakehead, managing director of the breathtakingly creative cake-making agency Cakehead Loves, just shared this awesome array of savoury food cakes. That’s right, despite what your eyes might be telling you, everything you see here is a sweet and tasty cake.
We’ve been making lot of fake savoury food cakes lately for our press pack / mail out clients with the wonderful Sarah King leading the charge and absolutely nailing the medium. She gets better and better and better – believe it or not these are all chocolate cake!!!

As huge fans of art, food, and anthropomorphism, we were thrilled when New York City-based artist Rob Corradetti, aka killeracid, contacted us about his artwork and we discovered this amazing piece of personified pizza:
SINGLE SLICE! Edition of 3. Hand Painted Screen Print on Clay Board.
Be sure to check out more of Rob’s artwork here on Tumblr.
(Have you made something awesome that you’d like us to see? Submit it here.)

We just found a relative of the awesome Octopizza Pie we posted about last month. This tentacular comestible was enjoyed by Redditor Chiefmon after being lovingly prepared by their friend’s (clearly awesome) mother. The tentacles are cheesy breadsticks with black olive slices for suckers. Yum!

This scrumptious fashion accessory is the work of Shaira who recently opened her own Etsy store called Raspberries and Rum. The 66” long Pizza Scarf is printed to look like a giant slice of delicious pepperoni pizza, but Shaira says customers may contact her to request different pizza toppings, lengths, and other forms of customization. Awesome!
The only problem we have with this incredibly appetizing scarf is that we start to crave pizza every single time we look at it. Then again, maybe that’s not really a problem. But between this and the Bacon Scarf, we’ll end up having to wear a bib on top to protect the scarves from our hungry drooling.

We don’t know who made this incredibly awesome Dalek pizza. Because there doesn’t seem to be a photo of the pizza taken after it was cooked, we’re hoping this deliciously hostile entrée didn’t exterminate them before they were able to eat it.

Yep, this edible beauty is an octopus pizza and we couldn’t be more excited about it. Instructables user donedirtcheap created this mouthwateringly awesome “Octopizza Pie" and then took the time to provide step-by-step instructions so we can all make our own cephalopod pizzas.
We would just add one little detail: surely the best way to eat such a tentacular pizza is while wearing Finger Tentacles.

Guinness World Records recently announced that the “Record Pizza Men” of NIPfood enterprise succeeded in their attempt to create the world’s largest round pizza, which they named ”OTTAVIA,” a word of Roman origin for “eighth son.” The name is “an homage to the first Roman emperor Octavian Augustus, who represented an epoch-making change in the history of Rome and brought the Empire into a period of economic and cultural unrest.”
The massive pizza measured an awesome 130 feet (39.6 meters) in diameter:
"It was made from 19,800 pounds of flour, 8,800 pounds of tomato sauce, 1.500 pounds of margarine, 550 pounds of rock salt, 420 pounds of vegetable oil, 50 pounds of balsamic vinegar and another 19,800 pounds of cheese. The dough had to be baked in 5,234 separate batches."
