When you hear about a succulent cake, you think of a rich, moist, deliciously memorable cake, right? Wrong. Well, right...but also wrong. Succulent flowers are plump little desert flowers with a muted color scheme that makes them so unique. They are showing up in lots of weddings, so they're showing up on lots of cakes. They go so seamlessly with streamlined fondant cakes, and just as well with imperfectly textured buttercream. Whether you use an edible replica or the real thing, succulents are a great way to top off a cake.
