Amazingly Realistic Cake Design of Ralph Wiggum from The Simpsons

Canada-based cake designer Kylie Mangles captured the most uncanny details in this edible sculpture that looks almost like an illustration. As a challenge to herself, Mangles decided to do something new and different by recreating an illustration by Erick Flores called Cutout Ralph. The image is half likeness and half dissected body of Ralph Wiggum from The Simpsons.

“I really wanted to pick a design that would be challenging and make me try some new things,” Mangles explained. “Well Ralph sure delivered on that. I have never made a cake with so many different colors of fondant or floating ribs before.”

The concoction is a combination of red velvet cakes layered with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream, Rice Krispies treats, modeling chocolate, and tons of fondant. She began modeling the bones a few weeks in advance, but the majority of the piece took five days to sculpt and assemble. The final results are incredible and, according to Mangles, “pretty dang delicious!”
