It's a trend sweeping the globe. 

"Oh it is huge," says Carusetta. "It's not only nation-wide, [but] cupcake designers in Japan are doing succulent cupcakes, so it's international now, it's huge." 

Carusetta of Sedona Cake Couture is leading the frenzy with her creations of succulents and cactus made of sugar. 

"We're all used to roses, with flowers and leaves, and that typical kind of thing," says Carusetta. "So to see these done out of sugar like this..." is something special for brides, millennial's and all sorts of people who are jumping onto the sweet dessert band-wagon.
