Alicia Becerra is giving all of your favorite Mexican foods and cultural icons a sweet and artistic twist via sugar cookies. The artist and baker is the creator of AliciasDelicias and as she says in her Instagram bio, “This is my art and it’s edible!” Becerra masterfully plays with color, texture and nostalgia as she creates edible art piece after edible art piece. There’s no wonder she was a Cake Wars champion in 2016.

Alicia Becerra is one artistic baker everyone should be aware of.


I wish this was my quinceañera cake.

But not only is she a baker, she’s also a master of puns.


If only everyone could have a friend as artistic and clever as Becerra.

Like, she really likes a good pun.


#SOLID

You should know that some assembly is required with some of the cookies.


SO. CUTE.

She also bakes these bright Lotería cookies.


These are amazing.

Foodies should really admire her attention to detail.


*mouth waters all over the keyboard*

You just can’t deny that these are some hyper realistic cookies, y’all.


This is the most adorable little taco cookie ever.

La Virgen on a cookie? Why not?

I should get my abuela these.


Becerra even has the roscas on lock.


YUM!

And, of course, she couldn’t forget to honor the first Latina Disney princess could she?


Get those credit cards ready. These are going to be the go-to gifts this year.

People Gathered Their Most Creative Anti-Trump Posters To Protest On President’s Day

Thousands took to the streets on President’s Day. No, not for the President’s Day sales on TVs or washer-dryers, but to protest and renounce Donald Trump. Trump has faced resistance from the moment he announced his candidacy, but the #NotMyPresident movement grew immediately out of the election in November. Yesterday, many were protesting his legitimacy as president, reiterating that his election was directly manipulated by Russian President, Vladimir Putin.

Among the controversies surrounding Trump, the resounding one continues to be the grip Putin has on him.

“Don’t go too quickly, papi, you’ll slip and get grass stains.”

People all over the U.S. are hot with rage at Trump’s message of hate.

Not even delicious Tapatío could remove the bad taste Trump has left in American’s mouths.

They took to the streets, claiming them and blocking traffic.


Traffic lights be damned, these protesters weren’t moving.

Musicians sent their message of resistance against Trump’s ways.


Who said you can’t keep it lit with some light Jazz while you resist? Next request was definitely a bachata.

Protesters found creative ways to show their disdain for Trump.


Not farfetched to imagine Trump wanting to win a pageant. He’d definitely try to rig that, too. Colombia’s got their eyes on you, Steve Harvey.

Outside of the protests, messages of true equality were being spread across the web.

“Well, the president said it was okay, so…”

It was common place to see unflattering images of Trump.


Many feel ridiculing the notoriously thin-skinned president is the sweetest revenge.

Some artists have found Trump to be their call to action, creating politically charged work that lampoons the administration.


“Sexual Content. Bad Language. Really Gross.” Sad!

Large crowds gathered outside of Trump Tower to let people know how they really felt.

#NotMyPresidentsDay

Some signs were more subtle than others. Replacing his mouth with an anus? Not so subtle.

People who’d never given much thought to President’s Day at all, found reason to reconsider its meaning.


No idea what’s going on here, but everyone should have the right to peacefully organize, even Ken and all his doll homies.

Protestors staged a funeral for what they see as the end of the American Presidency as we know it.


Mourners were asked to stop cheering, as it was the idea of the presidency being buried, not the actual president.
