A note on the Poinsettia flower
The poinsettia flower is native to Mexico. Also known as the 'lobster flower' and 'Mexican flame flower'. Its main feature is a single female flower with no petals, and usually no sepals. The male flowers surround the female flower, in a cup-shaped structure called a cyathium.
The poinsettia can be red, pink, white, as well as in dual colors. While it is referred to as a flower, it actually only consists of leaves and bracts.
Due to the fact, that it blooms in December, Poinsettia is very popular during Christmas. As a result, it appears on many Christmas cakes. In addition, it's also often used in wedding cakes. In addition, the shape of the Poinsettia flower and leaves resemble the Star of Bethlehem.
