Is it me, or do cake designers seem to get more incredibly talented and creative all the time? I constantly think I’ve discovered my “new favorite,” only to stumble upon a new culinary artist who blows my mind on a new level. Check out these creations by Lael, my newest cake obsession. Not only does owner Emily Lael Aumiller sculpt the most beautifully edible works of art, she does it all with vegan, gluten-free ingredients. (Those vibrant colors come from dyes made with fruits & vegetables!) Amazing, right? Follow the jump for a few more of my faves…

Which is your favorite?

    These cakes are pretty fab. My favorite is the third one. I love the uneven texture along the sides.
