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.
