Too Good to Eat – The Intricately-Detailed Cakes of Tuba Geckil

Tuba Geckil is a talented cake artist who specializes in making delicious desserts that double as optical illusions.

From ultra-realistic cakes shaped as Crocs shoes and salami-topped pizza, to detailed busts of real-lief and fictional characters, there’s nothing that Turkish food artist Tuba Geckil can’t shape her cakes as. In fact, some of her best works were included in a video compilation that went viral on Twitter last weekend inspiring the hashtag #EveythingIsCake and lots of memes. People just couldn’t get over how realistic some of Geckil’s creations looked and soon, everyone started sharing whatever realistic cakes they could find online.

Tuba’s hyper-realistic cakes and the hashtag #EverythingIsCake have inspired some Twitter users to post hilarious videos like this:

The Turkish food artist isn’t the only one to have captured people’s imagination with her incredibly realistic cakes over the last few years. We recently featured the unapetizing but delicious turkey of Sarah Harding, the inedible-looking cakes of Ben Cullen and Chef Ben Churchill’s edible illusions.
