Hydrangea cakes are the new food craze we can’t get enough of

When it comes to baking creative cooks can take inspiration from just about anyone, anywhere and anything.

"Perfect for weddings, baby showers and the occasional treat with a cuppa"

Love salad and cake? Then why not try combining the two to create salad cakes, which is a fusion of healthy vegetables and sponge.

Fan of unicorns? Then take a look at the mythical and magical creatures in edible form.

Or for doughnut lovers and flower enthusiasts, one of the latest food trends to catch our eyes is doughflowers - essentially a doughnut in the shape of a flower.

So really, it was only a matter of time before some very creative and talented bakers turned the popular garden shrub - a hydrangea - into an edible masterpiece.

Perfect for weddings, baby showers and the occasional treat with a cuppa, hydrangea cakes are cupcakes and cakes beautifully decorated with colourful icing to imitate the flower.

Many bakers have even gone one step further and created cake bouquets!

You can make the petals in various ways. Some foodies use a piping bag to pipe the different coloured icing all over the cake, while others use fondant to create a more structured petal. Whichever way they're created, both look way too good to eat!
