At the Highland Bakery in Atlanta GA these amazingly detailed cakes are made by Karen Portaleo. She got inspiration to be a cake decorator one day when she noticed that the cakes in her friend's bakery didn't have any creations. With a background in clay sculpturing she taught herself how to create spectacular decorations for cakes.
Portaelo has made cakes that look like a giant octopus, Darth Vader, a rhino and many other. Speaking of being creative with food, check out how food can be transformed into landscapes for tiny human figures.
