Cake designer Karen Portaleo made these odd desserts for Highland Bakery and these confections truly knock the competition out of the water.

At Highland Bakery, Portaleo has made a giant octopus cake that actually resembles a real octopus, a killer whale, a rhino, a crab and even Darth Vader as well. These aren't your typical cakes -- this is art and creativity at its best. Care for some octopus cake, anyone?

Implications - Out of this world and uncommon cake design has really taken off over the course of the last few years. This octopus cake by Karen Portaleo is at once unsettling and an exciting example of what is possible in terms of cake design. Check out more photos of this unbelievable cake.
