Nothing says it like flowers!

Think Flowers and the first blooming image that comes to mind will have your mood livened up.  Flowers have always been a high point of all celebrations. From bouquets arranged with real flowers, novelty led to the rise of edible flower bouquets which make a feast for the eyes as well as the taste buds. Any occasion can be heightened with a breath taking centerpiece that your guests can eat. The contemporary idea has caught on to an extent that unabashed brides have been seen carrying colourful edible bouquets at their wedding.

The allure of palatable blossoms can be not just a great gift for celebratory occasions but could make for a fun culinary creation. A Flower is nice, but for most food is nicer. Fresh fruits cut like flowers are used in bouquets and so are gourmet chocolate-dipped fruits. Moving over that, artisans are using the ‘lunch in a bunch’ trick and leveraging vegetables shaped as flowers in the bouquet apart from confetti cupcakes and cake balls. A blooming cupcake bouquet is also quite a rage and is gratifying to everybody’s senses.

Other popular bouquets include candy bouquets which are an arrangement of candies and chocolates and also cookies shaped as flowers which have gained prominence. If you have an eye for beauty, are handy with arrangement and design, then edible art is sure to intrigue you. Apart from that, creating organic bouquets is also a sustainable alternative. For those worried about their waist-lines, there is always scope in preparing bouquets with health foods.

Creating these incrEDIBLE flowers requires not just preparation skills but also unleashing your creative side. Think beyond what you see on Google and do not fear experimentation. Get ingenious, permeate your feelings into your art, create vibrant impressions and you can gift somebody a bouquet of edible experiences worth treasuring!
