Good cakes make the world go round - so thank the baking gods that be for the internet, where a wealth of culinary inspiration awaits. While our efforts at cake-making are limited to a hurried, sodden attempt at a chocolate-y something one rainy afternoon, sites such as Pinterest pay heed to a growing circle of baking pros who are able to whip up an edible masterpiece at the drop of a hat. Here, we take a look at some of the most incredible cakes to have ever adorned the world of viral, from impossibly realistic Coca Cola cans fashioned out of red velvet cake to a Victoria sponge version of Vincent van Gogh's 1889 print Starry Night.

Whet your appetite and grab some creative inspiration with photos and recipes, below:

1. The Rectangular Rainbow Cake

Always a crowd-pleaser, the rainbow cake becomes even more incredible when it's done in oblong, rather than circular, form. We don't even want to think how many attempts it took to perfect this work of art.
