Plaza celebrates birthday with spectacular ‘cake’

An artist has created a birthday cake with a difference: this one is made of flowers.

Makoto Azuma filled over a hundred large jars with water and real flowers, which were leftover from a nearby florist. The brightly coloured jars were then arranged into the shape of a six-tiered cake for the Imperial Hotel Plaza in Tokyo, where the installation stood for a month to celebrate the Plaza’s 30th birthday.

Specialising in installations featuring plants, Azuma has been a flower artist since 2005 and now has his own experimental laboratory. He also owns an haute-couture flower shop and has run a private gallery.

Take a look at Azuma’s stunning pictures of the installation here and tell us if this inspires you to experiment with flowers.
