Buttercream Succulent Cakes by Leslie Vigil

Two years ago Leslie Vigil decided to merge her love of succulents and baking, using buttercream to decorate cupcakes and multi-teared cakes with bountiful collections of aloe, cacti, and echeveria. The Southern California-based cake artist quickly discovered that the traditional tools and piping nozzles available on the market were geared towards petals and other flower-based designs. Vigil modified her materials with pliers to more accurately represent the plants she wished to display on her sugary confections, like the rounded growths for her buttercream string-of-pearls. “I’ve always found myself at home in a botanical garden or wrists deep in soil,” Vigil tells. “Being in nature has always brought me tremendous joy and inspiration. So, I was inspired to begin challenging myself to create flowers, succulents and cacti that truly honored and represented botanicals in nature as I knew them.” Be sure to check 3D jelly cakes and beautiful vegan cakes.

After practice and posting it up on Facebook and Instagram, a few people started to order them from me.” She established her business called Jelly Alchemy upon her return to Sydney.
