Mariah Carey loves butterflies and glitter and expensive ridiculous things, so what better present for her on Mother's Day for the mother of twins than a cake with all of those things?Mariah's manager had a cake made for her in the shape of a strappy size 8 shoe with a huge butterfly, according to TMZ. It was custom-made (clearly) by Kailava, a company that was featured on "Cake Boss: Next Great Baker."

They're known for their crazy cake sculptures. It cost a few Gs.

Look at it closely: except for the mirror base, this sweet, sweet fantasy of a cake is completely edible (including the gold!). We've never eaten our shoe, so we're curious how it tastes.
