Long gone are the days of buying basic cakes from our local grocery store — because lotería cakes are a reminder that every celebration needs to be epic AF. 

No, seriously, we’re jealous of these 14 lotería cakes we didn’t have at our birthday party. But do we even really need a birthday as an excuse to treat ourselves to some cake?!

OK, we're drooling over here.

Give the baker of this creation ALL OF THE AWARDS.

The beans really take it there!

Such a sweet take on the beloved Mexican game.

The watercolor effect is so beautiful.

If you're gonna go all out, you better go ALL OUT.

Give. It. To. Us. Right. Now.

Making an image from the card as a cake topper is absolutely brilliant.

And making the topper as an actual card is amazing.

This was a cake for twins and we're just mad we haven't thought of this before.

You truly can never go wrong with a two-tiered cake.

The possibilities for your lotería treats are actually endless.

You're all about your special card? DONE.

Or you can have the whole board on there if that's what your heart wants, boo.

It's time to hit up our local bakeries and put in our orders, stat!
