Flowers are a popular decoration on cakes: roses, daisies and even tulips can be used. Often these decorations are created with plastic chocolate, meringue or sugar paste, but there are also real flowers that can be eaten: edible flowers.
The most popular edible flowers are lavender, daisy, mallow, rose, calendula, violet ... you are spoilt for choice!
Moreover, they are all colorful flowers that give a fresh and lively touch to your cake. Use them on a cake with a light-colored glaze, like white, baby pink or blue. If you want a more dramatic effect, cover your cake with black plastic chocolate, and use flowers with intense colors like yellow and orange to create a pleasant contrast.
