Just as some of us think salad is utterly scrumptious, some girls just hate salad. They can't stand it! Is that you? It's cool, if so – everybody's different! What do you dislike about it, though? I only ask because sometimes, a dish presented in a different way with lots of yummy ingredients can make you reconsider! Salad cakes might make a salad lover out of you. They're just what they sound like – salads made to look like cakes. I mean, like sugary, sweet, delicious, beautifully decorated cakes. How could you not want a slice?
1. Oh Yes, Those Are Veggies
Want to serve up the perfect autumn salad? Try a different kind of “carrot cake” – get it?!
2. How Cool and Hip is This?
You know what the say: the more colorful your meal, the healthier it is!
3. Some Edible Flowers
Edible flowers are the perfect finishing touch atop any salad or cake – or any salad cake, for that matter!
4. Salad, Anyone?
Which one of these would you slice into first? I'm torn between the cucumber cake and that pretty purple confection!
5. Chopped #saladcake
This is a lovely rustic salad cake – a simple layer salad carefully and prettily molded.
6. I'd Eat This
I mean, I'd probably eat this all by myself. Sorry, not sorry!
7. No Dairy, Just Some Beets
No gluten, either, but lots of color and plenty of flavor!
8. All the Spirals
The patience it must have taken to arrange all those layers...
9. Little Tomato and Egg
This looks too perfect to eat, doesn't it?
10. All Veggies
This is absolutely stunning – definitely the statement piece of the meal, it could even double as an edible centerpiece!
11. The Place of Happiness
This is everything I've ever loved all in one place and I just want to taste everything right now.
12. Little Flower and a Little Veg
This is a truly massive cake, though – FYI, ingredients include roasted veggies, rye bread, labneh, and avocado pesto, yum!
13. L'il Radish Anyone?
I'm not even overly fond of radishes, but I would totally try this – this is a gorgeous little cake, even down to the “decorations” and garnish!
14. A Beautiful Display
Honestly, this is the prettiest plate I've ever seen – it's so vibrant, so not only is it healthy, but it appeals to pretty much all of the senses!
15. A Cup of Salad
Oh, this looks delicious – I want to have this every single day, I think salad cakes have the potential to make my diet so much healthier.
16. Small, Cute Salad Cakes
Not only are these the cutest little salad cakes, but this is a stunning photo, too!
17. Smoked Salmon Salad
The rose on top is a gorgeous touch, don't you think?
Have you ever tried a salad cake? Ever made one? You better share! If you've never made one, maybe it's time to try – you can use any ingredients you want, you can make any kind of cake, have as many layers as you like, include fruits, cheeses, grains, nuts, bread, and dressings – the possibilities are endless! I kind of hope this trend lasts a while!
