These crazy cakes are in a whole other league of artistic culinary designs than the frosted treats you’ve seen at places like Dairy Queen. These desserts are works of art, but with a huge side of creativity. From the bizarre (think 3D pregnant bellies and pasta cakes) to intricate masterpieces (the caterpillar cupcakes are something else), these crazy cakes are sure to fill sugar monsters and art connoisseurs alike with deep appreciation.

Implications - Consumers are no longer just looking for taste when it comes to food. Products that strive to make edible items unconventional appeal to those who want to experience something new. Companies could develop more designs with this in mind to draw in more attention.
