Greely Myatt's Wooden Cake sculptures look almost good enough to eat. It doesn't take a person long to realize that there's something not quite right about these scrumptious-looking slices.

The American designer works with pieces of reclaimed timber in the making of many of his projects, including this series of objects of the faux edible variety. A single beam or board would be cut up into a collection of identical triangular morsels and adhered together using an acrylic mortar that doubles as a creamy-looking coating of icing. The result is what seams to be an assortment of slivers of delicious layered cakes.

Along with Greely Myatt's Wooden Cakes include lovely little cupcakes, lollipops and ice cream cones. He's a professor of sculpture at the University of Memphis and serves up quite the enticing oeuvre of projects. Stats for Inedible Lumber Desserts Trending: Older & Mild
