These Creatively Genius Cakes Are Almost Too Realistic To Eat

Any celebration should be considered incomplete without a celebratory cake. Usually, the more important the celebration, the fancier the cake right?

If you have a celebration coming up that calls for the fanciest of cakes, then Sideserf Cakes both is and isn’t the place to go.

While owner Natalie Sideserf certainly can make the most ornate cakes, “fancy” is not quite the descriptor to describe her style of cake decorating. Natalie calls herself a “cake sculptor,” as creates hyper realistically decorated cakes that feel almost wrong, in fact, even cannibalistic, to eat.

Many of her cakes feature busts of celebrities, impaled heads, or even severed heads. She has recently gotten some attention for a cake she made that looks like Mike Ehrmantraut from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul after AMC featured her amazing cake sculpture during a promotional clip.

She also has gone viral before for her realistic cake of Willie Nelson, and her own wedding cake that features cake models of her and her husband’s severed heads reading “Till Death Do Us Part” underneath it.

While her process to make the cakes, by definition, seem simple, the results are true works of art. “The inside is made of layers of vanilla cake and swiss buttercream,” explains Natalie. “Once carved, the entire cake is covered in a layer of chocolate ganache and a final layer of modeling chocolate to sculpt the details.” She doesn’t just focus on heads, either. She makes incredibly realistic sculptures of things that technically aren’t even real, like piranha plants from Super Mario Bros, or Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Ranging from artistic, to creative, to truly gruesome, Sideserf cakes are almost too amazing to eat. Almost.
