Or, often, a combination of all three.

*Ahem* Something like Ivenoven, a bakery based out of Indonesia that specializes in hyper-detailed buttercream cakes, especially ones that look like terrariums.

According to a Food52 interview, baker Iven Kawi started Ivenoven in Tangerang, Indonesia in 2014, baking just one cake a week. Today, she and her staff bake 40 cakes a week out of two bakery locations.

Her terrarium cakes are so well decorated that your eyes almost strain from the density of detail and intensity of contrast. 👀

Not to be dramatic, but I'm pretty sure I could find the meaning of life between these beautiful succulents.

And I know what you're thinking, these cupcakes definitely look more life-like than real succulents.

Though Kawi only ships her cakes within Indonesia, you can always follow her on Instagram for endless cake-spiration!
