While perhaps not exactly to scale (which in this case means more cake for everyone thanks to the oversized shoe), we got a glimpse of this awesome sneaker cake earlier this afternoon via Twitter follower Ed Rosa.

The elaborately detailed cake for the birthday dude not only includes a frosting-based iteration of the most loved colorway of the LeBron 9 Elite, but it's also joined by a pretty dead-on replica of the shoe's box.

Impressive. And hopefully tasty.

If you were blown away by the cake, don't worry, Ed's party also included matching "South Beach" cupcakes.

Awesome stuff, and a happy birthday shout to Ed!
