Reflection

I believe if you’ve browsed through every cake showcased in this post, you will agree that they are all made in great detail, and this is what impressed me the most. Creating illustrations with graphic editing software like Photoshop and Illustrator is hard enough, but shaping a cake with so much attention to detail is just insane! You need both patience and skill to surpass the skills of these bakers. Kudos to all of master bakers!
