Andrew loves plants of all sorts. When his roommate Heidi called me a few months ago asking if she could get him a cake for his significant trip around the sun, I had all sorts of ideas. Gardens of buttercream? Veggies of marzipan? The possibilities were endless. We eventually settled on his love of succulents.
I’ve done succulents over the years made of fondant as well as buttercream. This time, I decided to go with very muted colours of buttercream. I love the look and how they all seem to meld into each other, much like how real succulents grow. Happy birthday Andrew!
