Here's what you'll need:

  • 125mm test tubes
  • Heavy-duty scissors or small garden shears
  • Rooted succulents – medium-sized
  • Small blossoms, stems attached

Here's how to do it: 

1. Trim down the root of the succulent.

2. Fit the succulent snugly in the test tube. Use gentle pressure to insert the test tube into the top of your cake.

3. Stagger other succulents in the other layers of the cake, and repeat step 2.

4. For the blossoms, first add some water to the test tubes. Then repeat the process for the blossoms: cut down the stems so they fit neatly in. For more volume, add other blooms in other test tubes and place them next to each other to fill the cake to your liking.

With this easy and quick hack, you can turn a plain cake into an elegant and minimalist dessert in just a few steps!
