With the wave of creative cupcake and cake pop decorations that recently hit, it's no surprise so many animal-inspired confections can be observed. Even the most devoted of vegetarians can take a bite out of an animal guilt-free with any of these critter cakes or cookies.

Among the most noteworthy examples are feline meme desserts, which also subscribe to an Internet culture phenomenon, cowboy confections, which showcase a cake shaped like a cow, and cute Jurassic cupcakes, taking the concept a step further by incorporating an extinct species -- so avant-garde. These cute confections also double as a way to get kids even more excited for dessert, since most of the animalistic treats are absolutely adorable.

If you like a side of cuteness with your cake, you'll love these animal-inspired confections. Stats for 21 Animal-Inspired Confections Trending: Older & Buzzing
