Not so sure that we could cut into these incredible embroidered cakes by Leslie Vigil who labels herself as cake artist, flour child and buttercream enthusiast.  The Southern California-based artist is inspired by nature and has a deep passion for baking.  On an article in Better Homes and Gardens she says this about her inspiration:

“Inspiration for the kind of cake art I create comes from my love and fascination of nature. I have found so much peace walking in a botanical garden or growing my own cacti and succulents in my own garden. I try to take that feeling and transfer it over to my cake art. Oftentimes during a piping session, I slip into a moment of zen. When I create botanicals out of buttercream, I always have the real ones in mind: how they grow, how they form, how perfectly imperfect they really are.”

More of her amazing creations can be viewed on her website and on Instagram.
