These pretty cakes are trying to cruelly trick you into eating vegetables

You don’t win friends with salad. But maybe salad disguised as cake will buy you some time before social ostracisation kicks in.

Behold: The salad cake. It’s basically a bunch of vegetables that are smashed together to look like a delicious, sugary dessert but is actually very good for you. How disappointing.

Misuki Moriyasu is the genius creator of this cruel trick of the eye. Her Vegedeco Salad Cafe located in Nagoya, Japan, will serve you healthy cake that’s “fun to look at, fun to eat and full of joy using a new shape of salad.”

And they are stunning to look at, even if they take the fun out of eating things you know are bad for you.

If youre someone who enjoys eating healthy and isnt a garbage bin of a person, however, youll be pleased to know that everything about the cakes is clean.

The sponge is soy flour, the icing is tofu cream and theyre all 100 percent gluten free, sugar free, low carb and vegan.
