Beautiful human and artist extraordinaire Christine H. McConnell is at it again with a new project, and this time, it’s delicious.

McConnell is known for being one of those talented people who can create anything from holiday decor to elaborate costume designs. The artist’s pieces involving food are among her most popular, and for her latest project, she decided to turn fruitcake into something that we can all get behind with a far more literal take on the treat.

Ah, fruit. While it’s certainly pretty, I’d much rather eat my weight in cake.Ah, fruit. While it's certainly pretty, I'd much rather eat my weight in cake.

And she totally feels me, since all of the gorgeous fruit in this basket is actually filled with frosting-covered goodness.

What I’m telling you is that she’s a gift.

McConnell calls it the April Fools Fruit Basket, and I’m pretty sure that this is a prank to which anyone would gladly fall victim.

I would love to leave this out on my kitchen counter to fool people into thinking that I’m juicing.
