Sugar flowers on cakes can be spectacular, and even so realistic that you'd have to poke them to know they're more than a garnish. But they're not exactly an endangered species. The modern but classic style of botanical prints seem to be having a bit of a resurgence in interior design - is it going to filter through to sweet creations as well?

It could be an interesting trend, if the intricate details in this pairing are anything to go by...
