6 Succulent Cakes You Wish You Tasted

It is safe to say succulents have stolen the show as far as houseplants go. Know of any avid gardener without an idea of what succulents are? Thought so.

And now the same hardy lot is advancing to a new frontier – succulent cakes. We’re used to the toppings being in the shape of petals and bouquets. For how long has that been the case?

Not clear. Here’s what’s clear: the flowers are getting edged out by succulents. And honestly, they are far more drool-inducing than any bloom you can think of. Don’t believe it?

Have a sight feast with the following picks of succulent cakes.

1. A Cake With Nothing on (Except Succulent Toppings)

Naked cakes are favorites for several reasons – Naked cakes offer that rustic beauty so hard to achieve with frosting, can withstand the summer heat and, most importantly, easy to decorate.

And that last reason is what matters in our case. Take the bare cake, sprinkle on an assortment of your favorite succulent cakes designs and the end result is this minimalist edible piece of art.
