The afternoon tea at Dominique Ansel Bakery in London has a botanical theme.

The cakes follow the path of a seed growing, with fully bloomed flowers at the bottom.

“As you go through the dishes, they get a little bit more elaborate,” Executive Pastry Chef James Clarke told Business Insider. “It starts with a seed, goes all the way, a little bit more elaborate until you hit the full bloom at the end.”

Savoury bites are served at the bottom on a bed of black rice, wheres the sweet ones are at the top on white rice.

The afternoon tea is served with warm scones, which are the longest element to make, taking about three days.

Prices start from £42 ($US56) per person.
