Masters of Disguise: Food Cakes

Here at ACD, we can recognize an emerging trend when we see one, and whilst cakes that “look” like food have been around for a long time, the incredible realism with which they are now made is startling. There have been a few instances in recent months when our team has been presented with the picture of a food cake and we just can not tell that it’s not the food it is masquerading as. One such cake was created by sugar-artist Jennifer Spruce of the aptly named How to cake that. 

Jennifer created a cake so convincingly realistic, it made us do a few double takes and it took the cake community by storm. Her ‘Caesar salad’ bowl cake is brilliant. who wouldn’t want to recreate this to fool an unsuspecting dinner guest!!
