Succulent & Cactus Cakes
Keep your eyes pricked for these contemporary cakes!
These little plants seem to be everywhere recently, so why not give your cakes an edge by adding a spiky friend?
Succulents and cactuses come in many varieties which means there’s many different options to create cakes around them. From classic buttercream creations to funky cake pops, the possibilities are endless!
Ways to make delightful & scrumptious succulents
There are a few options to create the perfect cactus.
- Moulds – use with sugarpaste or marzipan to create uniform plants
- Piping – different flower tips will build up different texture succulents and cactuses
- Modelling – flower wire and flowerpaste can be used to free hand build taller catuses
What occasions will these work at?
