Even beginners can make an on-trend succulent cake! This super easy tutorial by Charlotte White from Restoration Cake ( uses flower cutters to create texture and edible greenery.


Succulents are bang on-trend at the moment. You will see them everywhere, from windowsills to dress prints! As such, I am seeing lots of sugar succulents on wedding cakes and celebration cakes, so being able to make these is a useful technique to have in your back pocket.

I wanted to keep this all very simple for the beginner sugar florist. My succulents can be made using cutters that you probably already have for sugar rose making. I’ve made countless flowers using these cutters so they are well worth investing in if you do not have them. I make succulents in the summer, poinsettias in the winter and roses all year round!
