Potted Plant Cake

To help celebrate a birthday, we created a custom fondant potted plant cake, complete with sugar flowers, gardening tools, and more. A special celebration deserves a fondant specialty cake.

The cake was created for the owner of Cardinal Signs, here in Gainesville Florida. We use Cardinal Signs for our car wraps, banners, stickers, and any possible signage you can think of.

Paul, the owner, had the cake created for his mother’s birthday… with a comical twist, the sign said “Most of us love you! Happy 170th Birthday”

The cake itself resembled a flowering plant pot, with one flower that seemed to have fallen. Gardening tools lined the baseboard and the rear of the pot had cracks. help together with band-aids. Some of the soil trailed down the side of the pot when the flower reached the board.

The flowers, pot, and gardening tools were all created from fondant, as well as the sign and band-aids. The soil? Crushed oreo cookies. =)

We thought it would be a great touch to add the Cardinal Signs logo to the back of the fondant birthday sign.

  1. Love this! It looks so realistic. How much of it is edible? I mean could you slice right through the pot, too?
