Stunning Succulent Cakes

Succulents are the perfect little plants for gardeners who are slightly more forgetful but these cakes will not be forgotten that’s for sure!

Instead of piping perfect flowers on the top of cakes, many bakers have recently begun to decorating with frosted jade leaves and buttercream cacti. Based on Instagram images, it looks like some are also using cookies crushed into crumbs to achieve the look of sand at the bottom of a terrarium or in the desert.

A garden of icing may be the best way to celebrate keeping our succulents alive for a record-breaking six months or perhaps the birthday of a tree-hugging friend. Until we decide to master the art ourselves, we’ll be browsing the beautiful photos tagged with #terrariumcake on Instagram. The pictures will make you hungry and will also remind you to water your plants.

Create an edible garden! This fantastic cluster of succulent delights is beautiful. Get the tutorial for this from Wilton.
