Let’s check in on the decadent, completely inedible, yet perfectly wearable shoes from The Shoe Bakery (previously featured here). The Orlando, Florida-based company is run by Chris Campbell, who loves both shoes and sweets so much that he decided to combine them in the form of outrageously tantalizing ice cream, cake and donut-themed footwear.

If you’ve got a specific dessert and shoe combination in mind, Campbell happily accepts custom orders. Each mouthwatering pair of Shoe Bakery shoes takes about 3-6 weeks to design, create and ship. Prices range from $200 to $400 US, which should provide you with all the more incentive to refrain from trying to eat them.

Visit The Shoe Bakery’s website to check out more of their enticingly iced footwear.

When the Department of Awesome Overindulgence gets a hankering for a milkshake, not just any shake will do. They want a milkshake like these towering tributes to sugary decadence from Black Tap restaurant in New York City. 

Each of their spectacular milkshakes is topped with tantalizing ingredients such as chocolate-dipped pretzels coated in m&m’s, s’mores, ice cream sandwiches, brownie ice cream sandwiches, cotton candy, a caramel apple, a plethora of candy, or a whole slice of cake atop a huge dollop of frosting and sprinkles:

Things move fast in Japan, where novelty innovation is like a bullet train of awesomeness. Last month the famous square watermelons were topped by loaves of watermelon bread. Today they’ve both been bested by this tantalising watermelon cake. It’s called Suika Baumkuchen, which is a combination of Japanese and German that translates to mean “watermelon tree cake.” Suika means watermelon in Japanese and Baumkuchen is a type of German cake that’s cooked on a spit and resembles the rings of a tree when sliced. So a cake that looks like a watermelon and is prepared in the style of ring-shaped baumkuchen.

Suika Baumkuchen is made in Japan by online retailer Rakuten. The red melon flesh is a tasty mousse that’s flavored with real watermelon juice. The rind is made of rice flour cake that’s also melon-flavored. And don’t worry about avoiding the watermelon seeds. They’re chocolate chips, so you’ll actually be hoping for a slice containing lots of them:

The greatest idea for a billboard has been realized: one made entirely of cake.

Actually, 13,360 cakes. British confectionery brand Mr. Kipling and agency JWT London are the geniuses responsible for this gift to the the world.  Via

EDIT: Yes, they did let passers by eat the cake once it was all done!


Om nom nom.


Cake is awesome. No matter where you are, what day it is, time it is, what you’re wearing or what the weather is like, it’s always a good time for cake. And besides just eating it ourselves, giving cake to someone else is also awesome. You can use it to wish them a happy birthday, congratulate them, cheer them up or simply say, “I think you’re swell.” But giving someone cake isn’t always that simple. Perhaps they’re far away. Cake doesn’t generally make it through the mail unharmed.

But wait, Sandra Denneler of has come up with an amazing way to send a mouthwatering slice of cake to anyone anywhere - or at least anywhere the mail goes. And thanks to her DIY recipe tutorial, you can do it too. Sanda calls these creations Cake Postcards. They look just like the real thing, but they’ll never get crushed or spoil:

“Imagine how happy and excited you’d be, if you went to your mailbox one day and pulled out a slice of cake. Now you can surprise friends and family (and probably even your mail carrier), with this three-dimensional, mailable postcard, cleverly disguised as cake. With only five ingredients in this crafty recipe — a large sponge, spray paint, caulk, spray adhesive and heavy paper — it’s a piece of cake. Literally. Postage is around $3 per slice, but the reaction from the recipient will be priceless.”

Here’s an awesome Coral Snake that’s only venomous if you have a peanut allergy. Redditor Dookalignmike’s uncle spent six hours making this fantastic Reese’s Pieces Snake Cake for his lucky cousin’s birthday.

Considering how much chocolate frosting and all the packages of Reese’s Pieces that went into covering this sugary reptile, we might be willing to brave a snake bite in order to get a piece of this mouthwatering cake. Mmm… snake cake.
