And now for a Valentine’s Day dessert option that looks good enough to… well, not eat.

Canadian bakesmith Yolanda Gampp has made this stunningly realistic cake that looks quite a lot like a proper human heart.

The cake is assembled from two Deep Red Velvet Cakes, and is filled with burgundy chocolate ganache. Veins of red and blue fondant lie beneath a layer of pink fondant to give it that veiny look, and then the whole thing is doused in blood. Sorry, not blood. Red food coloring mixed with raspberry jam.

At least, that’s what Gampp says. I’m not convinced it isn’t actually blood. Delicious, sugary blood.

A more detailed look at the cake is available in the image below, along with Gampp’s video showing how it was made. Y’know, if you feel like it. Personally, I’m going to go wash my hands for seven hours.

You may remember Linzey Rae as the woman who combined her talents for cooking and metalcore music into a Shepherd’s Pie recipe for metalheads. Now she’s back with a new video from Metal Kitchen that teaches us all how to make a colorful layered birthday cake and decorate for the occasion with streamers and hats – all belted out in the form of dark, pissed off, double bass-soaked metal music.

Watch it below.

An artist named Kylie from Letterpress Bakery, is said to be Vancouver’s premier 3D cake designer. I believe it based on this amazing Simpsons / Star Wars mashup cake featuring a 3D, edible sculpture of Homer Simpson dressed as a Stormtrooper (which was inspired by the artwork of Ephin Cozmo).

Her process is detailed in the video below, and while watching it, you may catch yourself wearing the same overjoyed expression as Homer himself.

I have no doubt that many of you can make this Captain America cake complete with a flag in the middle without it being a disaster. Me, not so much.

Have a thing for Magneto? Well it’s no Michael Fassbender or Ian McKellen, but cake is a pretty good alternative if I do say so myself.

This fabulous creation is the work of Carla Puig for Comicake 2015, which is an awesome event where bakers from Spain, Mexico, and Argentina create comic-themed goodies. The perfect combination!

My baking skills are pretty much nonexistent, but I love BB-8 so much that I’d be willing to attempt these cake pops. Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies tweaked a previous cake pop recipe to create the adorable masterpieces you see here.

color changing cake

This cake actually changes colors. Each angle you view it from makes it look like a completely different cake. It’s like magic you can eat.

The secret lies within the wavy pattern of the cake that get airbrushed with two different colors on opposite sides. Too cool. Now that’s a cake of a different color!

Take a closer look at the effect in the video below.

Sure, Greedo was a lousy shot and a pretty crappy bounty hunter—but he looks great as a cake! This Greedo-themed cake was created by Jean from Cakes with Character using ingredients like Rice Krispies treats, modeling chocolate and Satin Ice Fondant. It looks absolutely stunning.

Elizabeth Marek of Portland, Oregon’s Artisan Cake Company may have created the manliest cake ever with this lumberjack-inspired creation. It features an edible tree trunk, ax and a plaid interior. She’s also offering step-by-step tutorial images for those who join her Sugar Geek Show website.

The only thing that’s missing is a beard. Maybe some stubble sprinkles?

Isn’t this Melting Candle Rainbow cake awesome looking? It’s the work of Jenn at Cookies, Cupcakes, and Cardio.

She makes it look like the birthday candles completely melted and drenched the cake–but that wax is actually delicious buttercream frosting. If you’d like see how it was done, check out Jenn’s video after the break.
