I need this cake (or a very similar one) in my life! Whoever made this is a genius!

Each artichoke is hand cut and created then surrounded in a buttercream bed of "packing straw". The basket is completely edible and finished in panels of wood grained fondant complete with wood knots, scars and tack marks (handles are wire).
Can you imagine an artichoke red velvet cake? YUM, perfection!
