There are plenty of posts about confectionery on Bored Panda, as there's a massive demand for sweet news. Some use cakes as a part of some imagined situation, some are in it for the art itself or creative choices, and some create cakes that are just plain creepy. No matter the preference, in baking, like in real cake, there are layers of hierarchy: only a select few become the creme de la creme, cream of the crop, top of the food chain, the icing on the cake. Ben Cullen, 28, is one of them. His cakes have a stunning range—from something that looks like it came from a fast-food diner to edible clothes, to stylized-yet-lifelike busts, to stabs at horror movies, to vegetables and optical illusions—he can do it all, it seems. And it messes with your brain, too! Some things look better on the outside than on the inside, and some the other way around. Some things seem so delicious that you don't care what they'd actually taste like, and some you wouldn't approach from miles away (they're still probably delicious, though.) In any case, check his works out and see for yourself. If you felt a sugar rush and you're hooked, check out his Instagram and Facebook to see even more. Who knew that the term "eye candy" could be so figuratively literal? Have a nice one.
