Happy Valentine’s Day!
Maybe it’s because we’re dieting, but this Valentine’s Day, I’m not in the mood for flowers. Instead, all I can think about are these stunning flower cakes by U.K. baker Amy Swann.
“I am motivated to create beautiful objects inspired by things that I love. Growing up in the Welsh countryside, immersed in nature, has had a major impact on my work. Seeing flowers in their natural habitat, set in little country lanes, around waterfalls and wild mountains, I have an inherent understanding of the balance of nature and seasons and their unique magical qualities. I create flowers individually, line them up and then spend time on the composition as a florist would, putting a bouquet or arrangement together. It’s about the balance of light, shade, texture and scale.”
So who’s up for cake?
