Personally, I think cakes that looks like other food are oddly humorous. I tend to get a bit giddy trying to recreate food with, well, food. Years and years ago, I made both a cake "cherry pie" and full on, fondant-covered turkey for Thanksgiving. My husband can also confirm my affinity towards food cakes after his donut groom's cake and towering hamburger birthday cake.
For summer, I decided to create this DIY popsicle cake. This version was inspired by an Orange Creamsicle- but feel free to use whatever color or "flavor" combination you wish. With just a few cuts and slices here and there, you can make this whimsical summer treat too!
