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.

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