We were pretty wowed by the Williams-Sonoma Blooming Flower Pot Cake which we featured last year. But as you may have discovered it does cost a pretty penny or two. Another option that would achieve a similar effect is to make your own flower pot cakes when you bake them in the Wilton Flower Pot Cake Pan.
Instead of sharing one big flower pot cake, you can make six little flower pot cakes for each of your friends and family. Since devil’s food cake or dark chocolate cake looks exactly like the top soil you use for plants, you’d want to choose those kinds of cake to get the most dramatic, realistic results. The outer side of the pot would need a sheet of fondant, and then the candy flowers on top could be piped or sculpted by the skilled hand or purchased. The photo also shows a simple iced sugar cookie on a stick which looks special, too.
