No that’s not a charcuterie board. It’s cake, y’all. 

Meet Sam Cade, the founder of Cade’s Cakes, the cake and cookie bakery you’ve seen all over Instagram and at events for fashion brands, sports teams, and even SNL. Following in the footsteps of Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi and Flour Shop’s Amirah Kassem, Sam is making custom cakes cool again. 

Whether you want a Momofuku Pork Bun-shaped cake, Golden Goose sneakers, or an edible portrait of your dog, Sam can bake it – with a flick of her edible paintbrush and a realism that would make Rembrandt jealous. Click through to see her insane cake creations and learn all about what it takes to turn dessert into artwork.
