As is so often the case with incredibly beautiful custom cakes like this Cheshire Cat Cake pictured above, it is just too cool to cut up and eat. Am I right? I am.
Images seen here of this one-of-a-kind Slayer Birthday Cake were posted on the Facebook page of my friend, Rob. This cake was designed by Jessa Blavatsky, a lady who obviously knows her Metal. Awesome Slayer Cake celebrates the birthday of Jimmy Duff, owner of the Heavy Metal bar Duff’s in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Cllearly, what we have here is a case of Too Much Metal for One Cake!
That new James Franco Wizard of Oz film may be getting universally panned by the critics, but I am sure this magnificent Cake, inspired by imagery from the original film, would receive rave reviews! Created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes of Redmond, Washington, the back of the cake (below) is also quite impressive!
Hello, Hurray! Can you believe I found this by accident? I’m only posting, of course, because this cake, adorned with a representation of the cover of the 1973 album, Billion Dollar Babies, represents the original band called Alice Cooper, and not just Alice. I Love this Cake!

When you’ve watched as many cake baking competition shows as I have, you know how hard it is to deliberately make a cake that looks like it’s falling apart, but really isn’t. Check out a screen grab from the original Disney film Sleeping Beauty and you can see that whoever made this cake did a pretty amazing job! Just look at those candles!
This Birthday cake in the shape and likeness of rapper Lil Wayne’s head was created for the 14th birthday of Ireland Baldwin (daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger), back in October of 2009. I just found it today after Googling “Rock Star Cakes” hoping to uncover something as cool as this. I’m not a fan of Lil Wayne’s “music” or anything, but I do think this cake looks amazing. Lil Wayne’s dreads are cleverly fashioned from licorice and his sunglasses are made from modeling chocolate, but based on what is obviously the photo on which the cake was designed (below) I think they could have put more bling in his grill. I’m not sure why there is a name tag (Bandaid?) on his face that says “Wade.” Maybe someone can explain that to me in the comments. I’d like to credit the bakery of origin, but I couldn’t find the name anywhere online, though I did learn that they are located in Beverly Hills, which makes sense.
This rad birthday cake in the form of two Taco Bell tacos was made by Laura LeClair Kelley – surely the Coolest Mom in the World – for her son’s 12th birthday. Here’s what’s in it: The taco “shells” are made of rolled out snicker-doodle dough with chocolate jimmies throughout for the “flecks.” The inner cake is a frosted chocolate round, cut in half. The lettuce is coconut that has been doctored with green food coloring, the tomatoes are diced up Twizzlers, cheese is rolled out and julienned orange Starbursts and the sour cream is made from giant melted marshmallows. According to Laura, “the entire process was surprisingly easy” and “didn’t take much time to do at all.” So awesome.
I love this Survivor-themed Birthday cake which I found over on the fabulous Cake Wrecks Blog. Survivor!
