When Philip Wang discovered a troop of baby foxes in his Princeton, New Jersey backyard, he took the opportunity to photographically capture them with the help of his daughter Alice. In an interview with Philly.com, Wang described how he came across the vulpine youngsters in his yard.

The Bigfoot insert was made using a Bigfoot cookie cutter styled after the creature in the famous 1967 Patterson-Gimlin film. Once pieces of baked cake are cut with the cookie cutter, they are placed inside the bundt pan and covered in batter before being baked again to create the effect.
Sasquatch. Yeti. Bigfoot. He goes by so many names, yet he’s still an enigma. He could be behind that tree in the woods, or perhaps in the icy mountain of a theme park ride, but most likely you’ll find him… in a bundt cake.
