Baker Quits Day Job to Create Awesome Cakes Disguised as Savory Food


White chocolate baby heads, STD cupcakes — it’s all part of a strange world of dessert in disguise.  If you’re not sure whether to be intrigued or freaked out, don’t worry.  We don’t know how to react either.  But Louise Caola, owner of Poppy & Lulu, has turned this into her business, making cakes that look like savory foods.

Ms. Caola is a master in transforming cake into steak, hamburgers, and fries. Sometimes they take hours to make, but after getting an overwhelming amount of orders and quitting her job in advertising to make her dream come true, she seems pretty darn determined to make this work.

So tell us, are these “savory” cakes good enough to fool you?

Nora Landis-Shack was born to be a foodie. With a classically trained French chef for a father, she’s been exploring new tastes since she was big enough to help chop vegetables for dinner. Pig’s feet, frog’s legs, and tripe are delicious child’s play. Which isn’t to say she doesn’t love a great steak. Because she does. With frites, please.

This is great.

This is why I can’t watch stupid shows like Ace of Cakes, because I know there are people out there that actually can make “cake” look like stuff instead of the poorly executed crap you always see on TV.

The roast beef looks pretty knarly and kinda fake, but the rest of it looks real, with the exception of the ‘tomatoes’ on the plate with the steak and fries. The tomatoes would be the thing to tip me off that something isn’t quite right there.
