Adorable Cupcakes Look Just Like Real Cactus Plants

You never have to worry about watering these cute little potted plants! The creative food art designs are actually edible cupcakes made with such impressive details that some of them even appear sharp to the touch.

Brooklyn-based baker and DIY maker Alana Jones-Mann created a step-by-step tutorial that walks any average baker through the process of making the playful food creations. You just need a steady hand, some green food coloring, and lots and lots of frosting. With a few basic tools, the little edible succulents begin to take form. Jones-Mann is filled with all kinds of amazing ideas and this particular one was inspired by another plant-based concept–a vintage gardening box–that she developed for her home.

The self-taught baker says, “For me, it's all about the details. I truly believe that personal touches can make any occasion unforgettable.”
