Pretty Edible Flowers!

Recently at work a coworker of mine brought in a gorgeously decorated cake. We had two birthdays that month so the requests that were made was for something with flowers and butterflies...but manly. A difficult request no doubt. However, what showed up for the two birthday people was a wonderful combination of both frilly and firm.

I give you: The Carnivorous Cake!

Those are not just any flowers on there, that is a combination of Venus Fly Traps and Pitcher Plants... along with incoming lunch in the form of edible butterfly decorations and glitter gnats.

To wrap it all up, the decorations are laid on a background of frosting and chocolate-chocolate chunk cake under that. While I cannot say that I tried the cake, the hand pulled sugar decorations were excellent when combined with the decadent frosting that went along with the cake. The whole thing was as tasty as it was beautiful! I can't wait to see her next creation... and eat it.
