Crystallised edible flowers to decorate your wedding cake
What could be prettier than a wedding cake covered in dainty crystalised edible flowers – rose petals, pansies, primroses, even apple blossom!
It will come as no surprise that today’s blog post has been inspired by this sudden hot summer weather we have been graced with in the UK. For a while now I’ve been collecting together a few ice cream inspired ideas for weddings, and there didn’t seem like any better time to share them with you than this week.
These ideas are by no means confined to weddings, so whether you’re having a barbeque with friends, celebrating your birthday during the summer months, or if you just fancy making ices for yourself and your partner then read on…
Edible flower ice lollies
I had to start with my favourite find – ice lollies filled with edible flower petals! This is such a neat idea and I really want to try this out for myself, I’m not sure how much flavour the petals add but none-the-less I LOVE this idea. Dreamt up by Marla Meridith of Family Fresh Cooking and her kids, there’s even a recipe to make these fragrant orange blossom popsicles with their colourful petals suspended in the ice.
When I saw this back garden movie night party I thought it would make for the coolest hen do – a girlie film, homemade popcorn, patchwork quilts, woollen blankets, and tealights flickering everwhere. I love it. What do you think?
I love the idea of an old crate filled with bundled up blankets and quilts for people to help themselves to. At our wedding we had a basket of fleece blankets tied up in rolls for people when it got chillier (more on those to come soon).
