Adding edible flowers to cakes, pies, cookies, and muffins enhances the whole experience. It adds an entirely unique, botanical look and a whole other dimension to your sweet tooth. Not to mention, they can amplify the flavor in interesting ways.
Edible flowers for your wedding cake
In my opinion, everyone should have edible flowers on their wedding cake! I offer some gorgeous collections that go perfectly with any color palette you have for your wedding. When baking other desserts at home such as, cookies, pies, and common cakes, decorating with edible flowers can sometimes be as easy as deciding where you want the flowers and pressing them in place. Most of the time, you won’t even need special tools or skills. I do always advise that you pay attention to flavors when choosing for your cake. You want it to be as tasty as well as beautiful and some flavors do not compliment each other well. However, when it comes to your wedding cake, one of the most exceptional desserts of your life, I recommend bringing the edible flowers to your local cake designer and letting them work their magic. Your wedding cake is sure to be a complete show stopper when you add edible flowers to the mix!
If you’re not into the flower’s full-on flavor but still want that creative botanical look for your special dessert, you can always candy your flowers. If you choose this route, your flowers will have a nice, sugary crunch to them. It’s still healthy though because its flowers, right?! Candying your flowers is very simple. All you need to do is coat the flowers in beaten egg white using a small paintbrush and then sprinkle them with superfine sugar. After they dry it’s as easy as placing the flowers on the dessert or bringing the sugared flowers to your local confectioner to include in their creation.
