Let's be frank: baking is a form of art. Sure, it's not a permanent piece you can hang on your wall for all eternity, but it's something tasty you can take a picture of and eat seconds later.
It takes talent to bake the perfect cake, as following every line in a recipe is crucial, and one wrong step can take your fluffy masterpiece to a rock-hard bomb. But, when it comes out of the oven, your mission is still not over.
It takes meticulous skill to decorate your dessert beyond the standard one-layer frosting. For those who have an eye for detail, it could takes days to complete their one-of-a-kind creation.
Just ask Natalie Sideserf, who is the owner of Sideserf Cake Studio in Austin, Texas. Along with her husband, Dave Sideserf, are hosts of Food Network's Texas Cake House, where they show off their expertise in the industry.
Their cakes are outstanding, and you can see their stunning artistry in every last detail.
