Debbie Goard of Debbie Does Cakes has created a number of amazing baked goods, including Star Wars Jedi cakes, and now she's baked this standing donkey cake surrounded by "strawberries."

The ears on the 20-inch-tall donkey cake are remarkable because they are so thin, but hold their pose perfectly. I'm thinking that if Debbie does donkey cakes, maybe she does elephant cakes. They'd make great political party partners.

Implications - Baking has become a unique art form. No longer are cookie-cutter tiered cakes acceptable and bakeries are now pushing the limits on their designs. By using paints, fondant and other tools, they transform this edible sculpture into true art. This also serves as a way to bring business to the shop as consumers want similar style cakes.
