The terrifyingly realistic snake cake

Thinking back to the birthdays of your youth, when they still seemed to garner some excitement, your commemorative cakes probably involved a limited amount of effort. We're thinking mainly chocolate hedgehogs.

Just imagine then, if you will, that your mother is Francesca Pitcher from North Star Cakes.

For her daughter's birthday, she created an incredibly realistic Burmese python cake, despite being scared of snakes herself.

She's now taking quotes for other snake cakes, if you want to scare a loved one off eating a cake ever again.
