What do you buy the person who has everything? Flowers of course. These floral cakes make ideal birthday presents, you can enjoy them for for at least a week and they are calorie free. The cake above features green beans and radishes amongst the flowers.
Floral cakes tend to be made with chrysanthemums or carnations as their uniform shape works very well en masse and they are long lasting. They can also be used as table arrangements for parties or a centrepiece on a buffet table. Floral cupcakes look cute grouped on a cake stand too. They can be made in silicone cake cases which have the added benefit of being waterproof, so floral foam will hold water better.
This zesty slice of floral cake has been placed on specially shaped dish, but any decorative plate or tray could be used. A group of two or three cake slices on a cake stand would make a fun centrepiece.
