Kate and Wills had a seriously fantastic decorator for their epic royal wedding cake. It's fruitcake which I don't really understand, as fruitcake is just not tasty. But it is incredibly gorgeous and gigantic: 8 tiers of different flavored fruitcakes, each with a different decorating scheme. I'm mad impressed.

Eli Squarepants! Okay so I'm not really a Spongebob fan, I'm a little old for that one, but I do think the show is cute and my nieces and nephews love it. This cake is a masterpiece topped off with those little jellyfish, I'm smitten. It makes me want to watch the show just because someone was so masterful with fondant. Hey baker, are you being payed by Nickelodeon?

I'd like to see a crew of fashion designers work with a bunch of pastry chefs to design amazing desserts. We could mash up Project Runway and one of those Top Chef whatevers and make a kajillion dollars! I could see this as Betsy Johnson's entry for a super simple petit fours.

You could almost tell the whole story with cupcakes, you're only missing a few minor characters!

Minnie's proportions are all off but the important bits are there: ears, bow, big eyes, lashes, suspenders, full skirt, cute heels. Overall I'd qualify this as a success!

It's nice to see cupcakes without any frosting on them. The surface of the cake is perfect for the crumbly soil effect around the sprouts. Dare I say it, they almost look healthy with just a little fondant sprout and lack of buttercream.
