11 Reasons We're Obsessed with Floral Food
Color-Blocked Chocolate Bark with Edible Flower Sprinkles
Flowers and chocolate? It's no surprise this candy bark is a match made in heaven. Paper & Stitch gives it a topper worth celebrating: petals and sprinkles.
Floral Honey Cake
April showers bring cake flowers. The School of Styling smears fresh violet jam and rose butter cream between layers of honey-sweetened butter cake. Now that's a hello to spring!
Wildflower & Arugula Salad with Orange Blossom Vinaigrette & Farmer Cheese
Talk about a pop of color. Harvest and Honey turns same-old-salad into a vibrant starter pretty enough for a wedding. Her secret: pansies, violas, and pink radish slices.
Edible Flower and Elderflower Ice Pops
Chill out this summer with the prettiest pop in the freezer. Chew Town uses just water and a spoonful of elderflower cordial to show off the flowers' natural beauty.
Raw Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream
A carrot cake that's both gorgeous and healthy? Done! This Rawsome Vegan Life combines edible flowers with walnuts and pistachios to make a crunchy, fragrant topper.
Nordic Open-Face Smoked Salmon Sandwiches
The View from Great Island does it again with pansy-topped salmon sandwiches. It might sound like a weird combo, but pair it with homemade dill or tarragon mayo, and you're golden.
Dandelions, weeds? We don't think so. The Daily Spud fries up the golden flower with the help of thyme-seasoned flour.
DIY Flower Syrups
Simple syrups are a summer cocktail essential, and thanks to Hello Glow, they've never looked better. Use fresh or dried flowers to make one of her six delish concoctions: hibiscus, rosemary + lemon, lavender + rose, chamomile + mint, blackberry + thyme, or orange + vanilla.
Honeysuckle Ice Cream
I scream, you scream ... Either way, this honeysuckle ice cream is a summer dream. The View From Great Island pairs the subtle, exotic blossom with real vanilla beans. Perfection!
Lavender Blueberry Ricotta Turnovers
We love the soft, delicate taste of lavender--not to mention its beautiful blush color! Local Milk Blog combines it with blueberries and creamy ricotta for the best tea pairing you've never had.
Hibiscus Lemon Curd Tart with Edible Flower Garnish
This blushing cake by Vegetarian Ventures gets its gorgeousness from hibiscus--one of the most popular edible flowers in the garden. Combine it with lemon and a cocoa crust for one lip-smacking treat.
Grapefruit Blossom Pot de Creme
Silky, elegant, and bursting with spring citrus blossoms--it's no wonder we love this recipe from The View From Great Island. If you can't find citrus blossoms, try lilac, jasmine, honeysuckle, or elderberry.
