American bakers are heading in a “greener” direction. 

If you’re a dessert-obsessed foodie like us, chances are you’ve seen some bizarre yet wonderful images of cakes, pies and pastries beautifully adorned with, not sprinkles or sugar, but vegetables! Yes, we’re talking watermelon radishes, radicchio, carrots, cucumbers, sweet basil and even chili peppers!

These bakers have proved that the sky’s the limit and we just can’t get enough of their scrumptious, sugar-laden creations.
