Move over, pretty pink roses! People are piping succulents onto cakes, and it is seriously jaw-dropping.
Succulent cakes, also known as terrarium cakes, are the new floral dessert trend taking over Instagram (with good reason!)
When conjuring the image of a gorgeous cake, more traditional icing flowers like roses, hydrangeas, and peonies might come to mind — but succulents and cacti offer a refreshing, desert-themed twist on a typical floral confection.
These cakes can open up a whole new world of creativity, especially when it comes to color: The dusky, desert pastel greens, light blues, and dusty pinks are truly stunning.
I mean, COME ON:
Some bakers even accompany their icing succulents with cookie crumb “sand” to finish off the desert theme.
