Francesca Pitcher from UK based North Star Cakes has created an amazingly realistic cake of a Burmese python. Francesca made the cake for her daughter’s birthday and after uploading the pictures to her Facebook page the snake cake went viral.
It’s truly touching reading her comments as she updates fans as the cakes begin to spread around. She writes:
I am, honoured, flattered and utterly terrified this morning as the wonderful Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes tweeted a picture of my snake cake out to his 40,000 followers last night with the word ‘AMAZING!!’ and a link to my FB page. Who would of thought that the cake I made for my daughter’s birthday party would cause such a stir and bring me a little closer to my idol.
She also added a Facebook milestone, saying “Snake cake has doubled my likes in less than a week – who would have thought it would be so popular?”
In real life, Francesca is afraid of snakes. We hope that won’t stop her from making another awesome creation though. May we suggest an anaconda next time?
