My Happy Thursday Bouquet to Most Lovely, Wonderful You (Edible Flowers, Reblog)

Zen and Genki:

I thought these were just the most delicate and darling desserts I’ve seen in a long time….Little bits of art unto themselves! Very chic, very fresh, very Spring! And just too unique and pretty not to share. (For the recipes, click on any of the picture captions). If any of you DO try one of these, please let me know how it goes! And for those of you with edible flower recipes of your own, I would love to hear about them (or better yet, see pictures!) Consider this my very Happy Thursday bouquet to most lovely, wonderful you. :)

Picture the following scene: Spurred by the lazy river of April rain, happy little pansies have woken up and pushed their petal arms through the warm soil. Walking along, you spot these hue-saturated blooms. Emitting an “Ooh,” you pick one…and eat it.

Wait, eat it? Yep! You read that right. Pansies, along with a handful of other blooms, fall under the category of edible (not to mention pretty!) floral fodder. Though you may not want to chow down on them like you would a bag of pretzels, these edible flowers are a frighteningly wonderful way to make what you bake or cook look incredible!

Above are a few recipes for you to ooh and ahh over. Talk about inspiring, right?
