Scrap tradition, get creative! These cakes are ultra innovative!
Some people follow recipes, but really creative people know that the best thing they could ever bake comes from tossing the book aside and taking risks! Just look at this super gallery of offbeat cakes!
Instructables held a contest to let people's culinary imaginations run wild. Anyone has the chance to vote on submissions, which include everything from ultra healthy vegan cakes to sculpted desserts with extremely intricate designs.
In addition to beautiful graphics of each entry, there are links to recipes and instructions so you can make your own.
Even if you don't want to copy the recipes, it's a great place to seek inspiration for your own edible masterpieces!
