One of my favorite things to plant are edible flowers. This is the time of year I eagerly await the spouting and blossoming of my beloved edibles. I love the joy in continually harvesting a bounty of beautiful flowers, using them to garnish plates, decorate cakes, sprinkle on salads, nibble on right out of the garden and share with my girls in the play of food art. I love that these exquisite and elegant faces of nature, bring such delicious beauty to the creations they grace!
Here is my 10th wedding anniversary cake I decorated ~ using
organically grown polish roses, violas, marigolds and daisies.
My daughter Luna's rainbow birthday cake using bee balm,
nasturtiums, calendula, mint, borage and violets.
served with this rainbow fruit salad ~ garnished with a rainbow of flowers
To celebrate this, the girls and I are making lilac blossom ice cubes for
our company tonight!
I am amazed at the amount of edibles you can grow and be inspired to bring your food to life with! check out this link, it guides you through what flowers to plant, how to use them and what they taste like.
