Insanely Adorable Cake-Popsicles by RayRay

Raymond Tan also known as RayRay is a Melbourne based self-taught baker and cake decorator. His adorable, fresh and fun popsicle designs made his Instagram a rage overnight. "While making a cake, he was left with a lot of cake crumbs, and in order to not waste it, he took out a (previously unused) popsicle mold on a whim. And the idea of the cake-popsicle was made."

It's his unique style and pastel colors that makes the popsicles so popular among his fans.
