Trend Alert: 2D Cartoon Cakes Are Taking Over

Cartoon cakes are all the rage right now, and we can definitely see why! These adorable creations are real cakes with real ingredients, but the decoration is what makes them stand out. Using pastel-coloured fondant or buttercream frosting and black outlining, bakers are able to make their cakes look like 2D cartoon drawings.

One of the things that make cartoon cakes so great is their versatility. You can create cakes in the shape of characters from your favourite cartoon shows, or make a cake that looks like a…  cake! The possibilities are endless, and the results are always adorable.

These cake decorators are killing it with their cartoon cake creations! I mean, they're almost too pretty to eat (but let's be real, we'd still devour them in seconds). These cakes are like optical illusions, you'll definitely do a double take.
