6 Outrageous Cakes We Can't Believe Exist in Real Life

Melissa Gorga is still smiling after "an amazing engagement party" for her "gorg niece"— but that could be the residual sugar buzz. On February 23, Melissa's lovely family member hosted a bash with her new fiancé, and we felt like giddy newlyweds ourselves when we saw photos of the beautiful desserts. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey pal shared snaps from the party on Instagram Stories, letting followers peek in on the heartfelt toasts and packed dance floor. But of course, what grabbed our attention was the lavish dessert spread. (So, we're slightly obsessed with desserts here at The Feast. What can we say?)

There are so many reasons we love this dessert, starting from its obvious visual appeal. Seriously, we're pretty sure this spread — which features the newly engaged couple's first initials — was plucked out of a bakery run by fairies. 


Not only is the dessert spread gilded, glam, and "gorg," it's also not your traditional cake by a long shot. Instead of your typical layers frosted with colorful buttercream, these giant cookies are stuffed with cloudy puffs of frosting, then topped with roses, chocolate-covered strawberries, and glittering macarons. Genius! 

Come to think of it, they tend to be pretty good at putting a fresh spin on cakes in Jersey. Remember the rosy pink cupcake spread that Teresa Giudice served to daughter Audriana on her 9th birthday?
