17 Delicious Cakes Inspired by Books

What do you prefer for your birthday – a cake that really looks good and resembles your favorite piece of literature? Or just a plain, square, and uninspiring chocolate cake that is delicious but not quite festive?

Birthdays aren’t about eating good food; they’re about having everyone suck up to you on the most depressing day of the year. A cake that looks like a book probably doesn’t taste too good, but dammit, the most important thing it photographs well and it makes you happy.
