Looking at these lush succulent desserts anyone could easily mistake them as being real, when in fact, the lush succulents are actually made from butter!

The talent behind these absolutely stunning creations lies in the artist called Ivenoven, who is based in Jakarta, Indonesia. "My baking passion and journey started one fine day when I was sneaking around in my godma's house trying to look for her baking recipes", writes the artist on her Facebook page. She started baking for other people in December 2013 and since then her bakery grew from just her and her husband, to a small business of 12 talented bakers.

The lush succulent terrariums are made using  butter, powdered sugar, food coloring, and sometimes some additional flavoring as well, all of which give them that velvet-smooth texture.

If you are as succulent obsessed as we are here at Bored Panda, these desserts will absolutely wow you.  Even I, a girl who always prefers savory stuff, am considering flying to Jakarta for the sole purpose of grabbing one of these succulent cupcakes!
