Garden Party Cupcakes
These light little bites are the most adorable sweet treats for an afternoon tea. Edible flowers were especially popular during Queen Victoria's reign; we think she would be pleased with this addition to tea time. Be sure your blossoms are nonpoisonous and free of pesticides. We've listed a few below that we think are lovely for any garden party.
Some edible blossoms we like at Dreamcakes Bakery are pansies, lavender, violets, and roses. Be sure to research any flowers you want to eat. You must be certain they are edible and that they have been grown organically (without the use of pesticides). North Carolina State University has a fantastic website with an extensive nonpoisonous and poisonous listing. You can also visit the Colorado State University Extension's website for tips on picking the flowers and using them.
