An award-winning baker has been branded "cruel and barbaric" by internet trolls after posting videos of herself cutting into lifelike animal cakes.
They called Hannah Edwards a "closet serial killer" after she posted the clips on the Facebook page of her North London bakery, The Cake Illusionist.
Edwards, 36, is renowned for her ultra-realistic sponge creations and spent years perfecting her methods to make a living from cake sculpting.
The mother of two uploaded clips of her slicing through two of her animal cakes, a dog and a horse's head, but the footage attracted a wave of criticism.
Among the 10,000 comments was one which read: "THIS IS DISGUSTING!!!! What's wrong with people how can you cut and eat a cake that looks like a real animal, eyes, face, heart, ribs?!? Barbaric. STUPID."
