Scrolling down the Instagram feed, there is no doubt left that food can be a work of art but when you encounter Leslie's Vigil's page - it's like you've entered a magical botanical garden instead of her kitchen. This Californian-based artist is ready to make new trends with lifelike succulent, cacti, and flower designs atop beautiful cakes that look too good to eat. And we love every bite of this edible art!

Leslie's food artworks are mostly inspired by the beauty of nature and art and her cake designs demonstrate her impressive skill set, amazing attention to detail, and creativity. She is so incredibly passionate about her unique art that once was called a 'crazy plant lady'. She shared this incident along with a picture of one of her green creations: "How do you react to the being called a crazy plant lady? Not sure how it was intended when I got called one, but I just sort of nodded and agreed. Listen... I’m here to live my life, ok?!".

Take a walk in this garden of cool cakes to make your day a little sweeter.

Imagine having to be one of the unlucky few who got a slice without the flowers on it.

I have a thing for succulents and all of these cakes, esp. this one, are so amazing to the point I may just have to fly to the LA area to get one.
