Today we're celebrating one of my all-time favorite things: FOOD. Well, and some drinks. Made of cake. Sound good?
So, what'll you have to start? Maybe some coffee?
We serve it up proper here, with extra whip cream, a dusting of cocoa, and some biscotti for soaking. Would you like one slice, or two?
Or maybe hot tea is more your style:

And here at Sunday Sweets, you get to eat the hand-painted teacups!
(Yep, those are entirely edible!)
Of course, it is a bit warm out for hot drinks, so maybe an ice-cold soda would be better:

And by "ice-cold," I mean "surrounded by sugar glass." Because both the bottles and ice are sugar. Which is still pretty cool, right?
Or, for the ultimate summer "drink":

ICE CREAM SUNDAE. Awww yeeeeah.
And you're probably getting tired of hearing me say this, but that's all edible. Spoon, glass, and all! Plus the ice cream is actually cake, which is really messing with my mind.
Now let's talk actual meals: what's your favorite?

Nothing here is what it seems. Even the waffles are cake. It's like the Matrix of baked goods, which is kind of freaking me out. But in a good way.
Or maybe you're more of a lunch fan:

I love - LOVE - cartoony food cakes. Can't get enough of 'em. Just look at those perfect egg slices! And the rolls of sliced ham!
We're about to dive back into the Matrix baker for dinner, though, with this ultra-realistic steak and potatoes platter:

You know how fancy steakhouses are always so dimly lit you can barely see the food on your plate? I want to sneak in one of those and swap out someone's dinner order with this cake version. Srsly, someone get this on a candid camera show, STAT.
I'm not much of a steak-and-potatoes gal, though, so my dinners out tend to look more like this:

Well, minus the spicy peppers, anyway. I think I'm the only person out there who loves curry and noodles and all the related culinary goodies - but can't tolerate even a teensy tiny bit of heat. I'm a total wimp. I'm pretty sure I could handle THAT pepper, though. :D
Oh, but wait: I forgot about elevensies!
I admit it: when it comes to food - and, ok, also height - I'm totally part Hobbit. I'm also wondering if the PB&J cake sandwiches in there are made with actual peanut butter and jelly, because I bet that would taste pretty awesome.
I've got to include a cake for all you health nuts out there, though - even though the concept IS kind of ironic:
Eat all my veggies? Noooo problem.
Here's a riddle for you: If you made a cake donut out of cake, then is it still a donut? Kind of?
Submitted by Brien F. and made by Deviant Art User ~Kiilani
I only ask because those giant donuts are made of carrot cake.
Ow. My brain.
Speaking of which, I guess it's pretty obvious what I've usually got on the brain:

It's like a self portrait, only more accurate.
I'll leave you with my favorite kind of food cake, though: a cartoony cake cake:
Doesn't this look like what you'd find in Minnie Mouse's kitchen? Just look at that pouring cream! And the little pink-and-lime scale! And all the puffy little hearts! Ack! ADORBZ OVERLOAD.
So... who's hungry?
