snake cake*We’re not sure what inspired her, but Francesca Pitcher from North Star Cakes in the UK created an amazingly realistic cake for her daughter’s birthday that looks exactly like a Burmese python.

She put some photos up on her Facebook page and before she knew it the photos began to spread around online.

Looking at a photo of the cake, we can certainly understand why word would spread.

She seems surprised:

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.
