These Jaw-Dropping Works Of Art Are Actually Cakes You Can Eat

These are no ordinary birthday cakes.

Submissions to the annual Threadcakes online competition prove that edible art is a thing. 

Threadcakes has been running since 2007, and invites professionals, hobbyists, or first-timers to submit cakes based on artists' designs on Threadless, a  community-sourced site selling over 5,000 artists' designs on t-shirts. 

While participants have lots of freedom to interpret Threadless' designs into a baked good, they must follow certain guidelines: their creations must be mostly edible and fit within the 2D or 3D category. 

Threadcakes came to a close this year on November 3rd, but seeing the submissions throughout the competition's lifetime might make your jaw drop and your mouth water.
