If you think that flowers are only used for decorative purposes or given as a gift, you are mistaken -- they are now used almost everywhere. This is why you shouldn't be surprised to see them garnishing beautiful pastries in boutique bakeries. Simplifying a cake's look or making it more natural, "naked cakes" have become quite popular. There is no need to adorn the outside of the cake, which gives you the impression that it was made rather effortlessly. There is no need for cream, adornment or sugar paste -- just the simple look of fresh flowers on top of any cake will give the treat a nostalgic look reminiscent of a painting. Bon appetit!
