We are a food-obsessed culture, especially when it comes to dessert; we love making it, eating it, and having it prepared right in front of our eyes. Frosting preferences aside, there is something mesmerizing about watching someone decorate a cake. Shows like Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, and Cake Wars are all the rage with viewers eager to know the secret behind creating amazing designs.
Cake decorating is an art form that encompases many skills and techniques. Master chocolatier Jacques Torres and master pastry chef Ron Ben-Israel are just two of the many figures known for their stunning designs. New York City is filled with a multitude of specialty shops, such as Magnolia Bakery and Empire Cake, who give us a peek behind the scenes, but thanks to the rise of Instagram and Snapchat, we get a front-row seat to the show even from afar. Here are 12 delicious creations that have us glued to the screen.

Behind the scenes Sunday Please excuse the up close filming quality but I wanted to show you how I make the galaxy affect. I use lustre dusts and glitter to add depth. For the stars I use white edible paint. It is also nice not to completely smooth your cake to create different levels of icing. Cake topper: @arloandco
