Thanks to a batch of particularly artistic bakers, today's cakes are so much more than delicious desserts. With designs based on everything from math to mermaids, these contemporary confections are as aesthetically interesting as they are tasty, as evident in this collection of nature-inspired cakes.
While all cakes featured in this collection are inspired by the beauty of nature, each one presents the respective baker's unique interests and approach to cake decorating. Many, like Ivenoven‘s sugary sweet succulent cakes and Intricate Icing Cake Designs‘ glistening geode cake, are realistic in appearance. Others, like Susanne Ng‘s adorable animal treats and Ray Ray‘s sculptural cake pops, are sweet and stylized. And some—including Twigg Studios‘ fun “Flowerfetti” dessert and Grits and Chopsticks‘ lemon cake—even incorporate real blooms!
Who knew the great outdoors could be so sugary sweet?
Bakers are celebrating the beauty of the world around us with their nature-inspired cakes.
