For far too long, the sweet, fluffy, buttery realm of cakes has been woman territory. Countless social situations have required tough guys talking sports to awkwardly shove sugary pink icing into their mouths. It's about time that more gatherings have cakes, and not the kind with flowers and sentimental messages written in cursive.

With help from the team at Mike's Amazing Cakes, we've dug up some amazing images of manly cakes. Whether it's for a birthday, bachelor party, wedding or other special occasion, these confectionary creations prove that baked goods can be works of art -- and they aren't just for girls anymore.
