Lifelike succulent cakes are our favourite new food trend

Step aside Mary Berry, because these bakes must take some serious skill.

You might have noticed that succulents are having a little bit of a moment right now, featuring everywhere from hair accessories, to clothing and shoes.

And now a baker has also started incorporating succulents into her cakes, after discovering she had a hidden talent for creating icing in their image.

Iven Kawi, who is based in Jakarta, describes herself as an 'artisan baker' who specialises in these green-fingered bakes for all occasions.

The mum, who started out creating cookies for her daughter's school bake sales, now has a thriving business creating these exquisite cakes, and has made a real niche for herself in doing so.

Recreating everything from flowers to the less attractive aspects of plant life, such as soil and spikes, Iven is the go-to girl for anyone planning a wedding or birthday cake with a difference.

They're almost too beautiful to believe.
