Edible flowers

Can you believe these flowers are not real? Not only that but you can eat them!

Incredible Flower Cakes is based in Rhodes, Sydney and specialises in creating these handcrafted edible buttercream flowers on their cakes.. #cakegoals


Semi-naked cakes

The semi-naked cake design is a simple design trend which adds a rustic element to the design. All Things Sweet by Carissa is a cake designer based in Glenmore Park, Sydney who demonstrates this really effectively by adding a touch of flowers and a cake topper to bring it all together!

Dripping cake with fresh flowers & cake toppers


These three design ideas are a very popular combo in the cake industry. The dripping effect makes the cake more enticing and textured, the flowers add a fresh and vibrant element and the gold cake toppers add a personal touch - you can't really go wrong! There are so many different styles you can create from this with different types of flowers and colours - the possibilities are endless.

Jade from Ivy & Stone Cake Design is a Sydney based cake designer who can really pull it off! 


Shards with gold leaf

Toffee or chocolate shards add an amazing 3D element and shape to a cake design. This can be paired with a gold leaf texture to add another dimension and colour.

Cliff from Cakes by Cliff uses these design elements a lot in his work which are inspired by his background in Architecture!

Decorating with fruit


Fruit decoration on a cake adds depth and dimension to the design, as well as looking delicious!

Cutting the fruit open makes the cake look a lot more enticing, just like the figs in this cake design by Cordy's Cakes.
