At the Highland Bakery in Atlanta GA these amazingly detailed cakes are made by Karen Portaleo. She got inspiration to be a cake decorator one day when she noticed that the cakes in her friend’s bakery didn’t have any creations. With a background in clay sculpturing she taught herself how to create spectacular decorations for cakes.
Portaelo has made cakes that look like a giant octopus, Darth Vader, a rhino and many other. Speaking of being creative with food, check out how food can be transformed into landscapes for tiny human figures.

Best animal cakes I’ve seen, and I’ve seen a lot!
These are way BETTER than the ones you see on the Food Network and the TLC shows like Cake Boss! lol
My thoughts exactly. The cake boss has nothin’ on this person. Major talent!!!
The armadillo cake is awesome! Wonder if it is red velvet on the inside like on Steel Magnolias!?!
Big Boys Oven says
Amazing and so talented!
Pure awesome! But I’m with Clare: I think I’d have a hard time eating one. How do I get to have my cake and eat it, too?

On the leather jacket cake, I would have the lining lighter and put a label with the persons name on it. It is incredibly realistic down to the texture and stitches.
I think it is very good
