Floral Cakes with Painted Florals
cake: Historias del Ciervo
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!

Floral Cakes with Real Flowers
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.
Floral Cakes with Sugar Flowers
Flowers made from sugar…is this heaven? These blooms look SO real, guests will have to take a second look. The skill and mastery that goes into a cake with sugar flowers is beyond comprehension and we cannot. stop. staring.
