There’s no better way to display your cake as a work of art than to make it a literal work of art. Painted cakes are taking over, and we’re here for it. The best part: painted floral cakes come in kinds of style from modern to impressionism to realism. They’d belong in a museum if they didn’t taste so good!

You simply cannot go wrong with putting a beautiful bloom atop a cake. What we love about these cakes in particular, is that one extra WOW-factor step. A simple branch on a clean + modern cake is every bit as stunning as an embellished drip cake or an ombré layer cake! Endless possibilities yet major drama all around.
