Mike's cake art is guided by two principals: "the concept being presented should be as accurate and true to life or as animated as possible and should have as unique a perspective as can be conjured up. The structural principals of architecture constantly influence Mike's work and he draws great inspiration from a wide range of illustrators such as Alphonse Mucha, Normal Rockwell or James Christensen."

I love cake, and this artist does an excellent job of replicating various scenes and objects to look like the real thing. He is definitely a master of his craft. I'd have to say that my favorite is the Broadway cake because it's so colorful and diverse. Which one do you like the best?
