These Super-Realistic Cakes Will Give You Major Trust Issues

From Delish

If you’re a human being on the internet, chances are you’ve seen the recent “Everything is cake” meme, showing off things that look like everyday items until you cut in…and boom! They’re actually delicious cakes. Though these cakes are guilty of giving us and the rest of the internet some serious trust issues (like, is everything cake now?) we can’t help but be in awe of these creations, many of which were made by baker Luke Vincentini.

You’ve probably seen more than a few of Luke’s amazing, super-realistic cakes floating around online, or maybe you follow his super-popular Instagram.

‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Race Issues Have Deep Roots In The World Of Fantasy

Wizards of the Coast — the company behind the self-proclaimed “world’s greatest role-playing game,” “Dungeons & Dragons” — has committed to stressing diversity and removing racially problematic language from its product line, and fans are holding the company to account for its promises.

“Dungeons & Dragons,” commonly known as D&D, is a game in which a group of players creates characters, rolls dice and navigates a story overseen by a Dungeon Master. Originally created in 1974, the game issued a fifth edition in 2014 that became its most popular, especially after livestreaming platforms such as Twitch and shows such as Netflix’s “Stranger Things” introduced D&D to new audiences.
