With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I felt inspired by all the floral colors and Spring greens dressing every table at the Farmer’s Market. Gazing upon gorgeous boxes of edible flowers such as organic orchids, nasturtiums, pansies and snapdragons, the idea to put a twist on my go-to couture fruit cubes was born.
CHEERS AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE.
FLORAL ICE CUBES
Make sure the flowers are pesticide and chemical free and clean before using.
To suspend flowers in the cubes, work in layers: Fill an ice tray that makes large cubes (to best showcase each flower) a quarter of the way with filtered water. Add flowers facing down, and freeze. Add more filtered water to fill halfway, and refreeze. Fill to the top, and freeze again.
