Perhaps you mean beefcake or cheesecake. These mean pictures of attractive and scantily-dressed men and women respectively, or men and women who would be suited to appearing in such pictures. So, yes, it could be used to describe the physique of a person, suggesting that they were physically attractive specimens.
