The internet had a bit of a meltdown recently over videos and photos of cakes made to look like everyday items. They’re so realistic that they almost bend reality when they’re being cut into and the items are revealed as cake and icing.

After seeing these videos, we needed more, more, more, so we reached out to Natalie Sideserf, owner and resident artist at Sideserf Cake Studio in Austin, Texas. She’s one of the amazing cake artists creating this gorgeous, edible artwork. She not only told us about how she got her start, she hooked us up with photos of some of her jaw-dropping work.

Check them out!
