For starters this is not a real Burmese Python, but rather a Snake Cake by North Star Cakes.
This hyperrealistic cake design was created by United Kingdom-based Bespoke wedding and celebration cake company, owned and operated by Francesca, a classically trained sculptor and painter. According to her Facebook page, Francesca created this Amelanistic Burmese Python snake cake for a birthday party and she is available to make similar cakes by request.
This cake would be perfect for any prankster with a close friend or relative with a fear of snakes. The snake appears to be sitting on top of a chocolate cake, almost protecting it. Any unsuspecting viewer cannot help but think the cake is real, but would soon be pleasantly surprised that North Star Cakes are as delicious as they are stunning.
