The Letterpress bakery in Vancouver, BC has designed an impossibly realistic, completely edible Marge Simpson cake. The iconic cartoon character is brought to life through this intricate design which depicts Marge from the shoulders up gazing into the distance, adorned with her classic red pearl necklace.
The cake takes a humorous twist by depicting Marge as hiding a fully functional donut factory under her iconic blue, bee-hived locks -- a nod towards her fictional junk food-loving husband, Homer. The cake was designed with such intricacy, the yellow-clad character looks as though it could come to life.
The complicated cake was made with tangerine-infused milk chocolate ganache, and stacked with layers of vanilla cake. The Marge Simpson cake serves as an edible example of the merging of popular culture with other disciplines to appeal to an increasingly growing demographic.
