Edible Flowers

July 14, 2014

Ever since I saw this cake I had been wanting to add edible flowers to glam up one of my baked creations. But it took me a while to find a place that sold them in a package and were ready to use.   Until finally I saw these beautiful edible violas.  My daughter and I made the Miette Tomboy cake we tried out here with a few changes to the frosting so it would match the violas.  We made a yummy and exotic lavender butter-cream which was divine.  Now I want to use edible flowers on everything!  They really stole the show at our little luncheon.  Here are some other fun things you could do with these beautiful edible flowers.


In ice cubes, in drinks, atop cupcakes....the possibilities are endless and oh so beautiful!  I can't think of a better way to embellish your menu, can you?

  2. I have never tried that before but I sure love how it looks in all the photos

  3. Such a pretty way to "dress up" food! I love the idea of flowers in ice cubes as well!
