These cakes are shaped cylindrically and capture the scene from the beachside or the shore of a tiny island. While the islands are made with a mix of chocolate cake layered with vanilla cream, the blue ocean is shaped with a jelly mix. The island cakes look incredibly realistic and are often carved with intricate details. This includes fruits, nuts and edible paint to give the cake an authentic look. Bakers are also trying to capture a slice of marine life in these incredible island cakes.

Professional bakers admit that although the cakes look deliciously stunning, there is a lot of effort that goes into baking them. Anna Filotava, a Russia-based baker, told Insider that the island cake is probably the most complicated cake that she has ever attempted involving a painstaking process. As for the inspiration behind these cakes, most bakers are taking inspiration from their own vacations to beaches and islands and pouring their thoughts into baking.
