When we were growing up, cake design was not a thing. Boys got blue cakes, girls got pink cakes with a favourite character and candles on top. Today, cakes have taken a life of their own; an art form and medium for the über talented pastry chefs. It is no longer about getting the perfect mix of flour, eggs, sugar, and other ingredients to bake the perfect dessert. Now the baker and artist blend into one to make these surreal creations. Whether it’s recreating the world of *Alice in Wonderland* or paying homage to the birthday person, there is no limit to what can be made. Take a look at the best, too good to eat cakes.
