Cake Top Gardens

My first thought when I saw these was “Those aren’t Pillows” — (one of my all time favorite  and most quotable movies – Planes, Trains, and Automobiles)

Nope, they are aren’t what they seem, but what they are is pretty amazing re-creations of beautiful bits of nature that you can put on top of a cake….and then eat.

I’ve got a little reputation for going all out on birthday cakes, and to be honest, I would not have thought twice about putting real acorns or leaves on top of a cake (if the mood struck) but I am sure that there is a collective sigh of relief from my guests that I haven’t (yet).   But now I don’t have to thanks to Andie’s Specialty Sweets on Etsy.  She has created all sorts of made to order garden delectables.   I’m looking forward to a little cake top landscaping with the help of these.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
