Some of us eat with our eyes as well as our mouths, so for us, food presentation is as important, if not more so, than the taste. These cakes are perfect examples – we can't taste them (unfortunately), but most of them look as delicious as can be.

Most of these cakes owe their artistic magic to fondant, a controversial cake decoration ingredient that is delicious to some and foul to others. Fondant can be made in various colors and consistencies, so it is the perfect foundation for incredible sculpted cakes like these.
