snakecake Snake Cake! Run for Your Lives!

Francesca Pitcher from North Star Cakes in the UK created this disturbingly realistic Burmese python cake for her daughter’s birthday. She posted it on her Facebook page and it’s gone viral from there. Decorative cake guru Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes even tweeted about it.

Nice job, but maybe too realistic. I think I just lost my sweet tooth. Hey, wait, she could be onto something — make all of those deadly desserts LOOK deadly.
