Many bakers and cake decorators are using their skills to create cakes that resemble traditional buttercream cakes but with the look of a 2D comic cake. Some popular examples include cakes that look like a single slice of cake, tiered cartoon cakes and mini-comic cakes in different sizes.
And before you ask, yes these are REAL
They are not fake treats, seriously!

The most important feature of these cakes is the black outline detail made from either rolled fondant or piped icing. The comic cakes look easy to make but there is a skill to them, buy hey any trend is worth trying if you think you can DIY your own!

This style reminds me of the Dr Seuss Books, Retro Pop-art & kitsch 70's & 80s cartoons
