Succulent Plant Inspired 'Terrarium' Cakes

April 20, 2017

These are some of the 'terrarium cakes' (and cupcakes) baked and decorated by Iven Oven, a home bakery in Lippo Karawaci, Indonesia. Each one has a variety of succulent plants on top, created with fondant and various piping techniques. Sure the bakery department at your local grocery store can make flowers, but what about succulents? I dunno, maybe they can do that too, the lady at my local grocery store bakery can't make much except spelling mistakes. "Or maybe you just wrote it wrong on the cake request form." Whatever, she should have known Mom wasn't spelled with two O's.

Keep going for a bunch more examples.

Thanks to Anselmo, who agrees Mother Nature shouldn't have made succulents look like they're made out of little pieces of candy if she didn't want me trying to eat them all the time.

    These look way cooler than anything on those stupid cake design shows.

    Every time I see these glorious and pretty cakes, I think "Wow, what talent, the time and craftsmanship and artistry to do this." But then every time I've been able to eat one or bought one I think "Umm this tastes weird (and in some cases gross)" My grandmother's sloppy icing'd cakes takes like heaven on earth and I've yet to find one of these that tasted even decent, must less be actually delicious.

  • I have a distant relative who makes decorative cakes like this, that are delicious, so there's no excuse for yucky-tasting fancy cakes! (You're never really supposed to eat fondant though. You CAN, but it's always gross.)

    you're not supposed to eat them, they're for display. like art.

    I shutter to think what all that fondant and modeling claychocolate has done to your colon over the course of your quest for a tasty decorative cake

    If I were a SJW I would run my hands over my neon green and purple shaved head showing off the long hair (also dyed) of my pits and scream "RAPE - Stop thinking about my colon!!!" as 300lbs of flesh warbled around. But seriously - I am not talking about the fondant - I mean the cake under all the pretty stuff has never been as good and it sucks without homemade frosting.
