Our pretty flower petal cakes are todays “Idea of the day” from Brides Magazine! Lovely job…
The article says:
“Bee, who also makes naked cakes decorated with fruit, nuts and flowers or edible bloom garlands, offers her top tips for floral cake perfection:
– Choose your petals carefully. Florist grade flower petals, even if taken from edible species of flowers, are not safe for human consumption, as they’ll often have been sprayed with pesticides and fertilisers – even if you rinse them in water, they’re still not safe to eat.
– Buy your petals from a certified organic grower in your country. This ensures that they are safe to eat – they’ll have been grown in real soil without pesticides or fertilisers, neither of which are safe to eat. We source our flowers from Maddocks Farm Organics, an award-winning grower in Devon.”
