We think it's fair to say that, although we clearly are better at Olympic sports (OK, we'll give them dressage), the Brits are a tad more sophisticated than us Yanks. Case in point: Our "fancy" cupcakes might feature Oscar the Grouch or perhaps a pretty rose or cute doggie. British fancy cupcakes sport such items as perfect replicas of literary classics. These are from Victoria's Kitchen in London, a home-based boutique bakery specializing in "beautiful bespoke" cupcakes, cakes and cookies. This particular batch is for a woman celebrating her 60th birthday, and features some of the books that have shaped her life, including soccer star Christiano Ronaldo's autobiography and Chicken Licken.

Turn the page for more lovely samples. Please Victoria, can you toss some across the Pond? Please? We're really sorry about George Washington!

We may have won the Revolution. But we have been creamed by the Redcoats in the Cupcake War.
