Guardians of the Galaxy's Groot is also a cake

Over the weekend, a lot of you watched a green chick, a talking raccoon, and a six-packed Andy from Parks and Recreation fight in space. But while you were doing that, the duo at Tattooed Bakers was crafting a cake version of the most deciduous Guardian of the Galaxy, Groot.

In case you aren't familiar with Tattooed Bakers, they're Richard Amon and Eddie Lebeau, and they've been known to make some utterly insane cake art, including an edible bust of this guy. All we've gathered about their comic book creation is that it's a chocolate cake which may have been a custom job for Disney. Instructions on how to eat the tree bark icing are hopefully forthcoming, but regardless, this is the most exciting thing to happen to Vin Diesel since his last Teen Choice Award.
