The Cake Illusionist creates hyper-realistic animal cakes, wedding cakes, and other custom orders. These cakes can take days of work.

The cakes are assembled with a buttercream filling, and carved into shape. Each cake is then covered in a crumb coat, this seals the surface ready for icing.

Simple icing shapes are added at first then a full layer is placed on top. This icing is sculpted into shape and feet and ears are added.

The cakes are airbrushed to add details and colour, this process takes hours. The final step is the eyes and fine details and then the cake is ready to eat. Every single part of the cake is edible.

Cakes can be ordered from The Cake Illusionist from £250, and cake making classes are also available to book.
