12 Realistic Food Cakes from a Self-Taught Baker That Have Us Fooled

Laura Loukaides is a self taught baker that is molding up some of the most realistic cakes around – and she’s only in her twenties! I don’t know what’s harder to believe, her cakes or the fact that she’s self-taught!

Either way, she is truly a talented baker conjuring up some life-like designs that will leave you second guessing what’s real and what is cake. Her cakes look so realistic, you’d have to eat them to believe that they were made from fondant and flour. From a bowl of spaghetti to a massive strawberry, here are twelve of her crazy creations that play tricks on the eyes and mouth.

1. Strawberries

I’m not sure what tastes better, but I definitely want a bite!

2. Cupcake on a Book Platter

Fact, that’s not a real book.

3. Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Cookie or cake, that must taste good.

4. Pepperoni Pizza
