Freakishly Realistic Snake Cake


No this isn’t a real snake. It’s 100 percent cake. Baker Francesca Pitcher, of the U.K.’s North Star Cakes, posted about the cake on her Facebook page on July 29, and it has since gone viral, doubling her Facebook likes in less than a week.

The realistic snake (a Burmese python with amelanism, to be exact) was sculpted for a child’s birthday. Unfortunately, Pitcher doesn’t ship to the U.S. and is keeping how the snake is made under wraps for now.
