Cloud-Covered Faroe Island Looks Like A Giant Cupcake (Picture)

One of the Faroe Islands is called Lítla Dímun. As well as being a sub-editor's nightmare, it's also capable of transforming into a 'Giant Minty Cupcake' - as long as the cloud cover is right.

For proof, take a look at the brilliant photo above, which shows the tiny, uninhabited island - the only uninhabited island of all the 18 Faroe Islands - blessed with a tiny cloud hat that makes it look like a frosted baked treat.

The person behind the astonishing shot is Miss Andrea Ricordi, an Italian tourist who happened to be at the right place at the right time when the cloud popped itself onto the 250 acre island, travelling on a ferry from the Faroe Islands' capital Torshavn and the more southerly island of Suouroy.

"It was an amazingly clear and bright day except this one cloud was so stubborn and it was right there on top of the island," she said.

"It looked like a big cake or something with icing sugar on top and I was surprised because it was quite low in the sky," She added. "I thought I must get a picture to show my friends back home and I was really happy with the result."

If you're thinking Lítla Dímun is pretty idyllic, bear in mind that if you were to make your way there, most of your buddies would be sea birds and wild sheep. Who obviously like giant cupcakes.
