Edible Apple Blossom Flowers & Video
Sometimes I wish edible flowers smelled like real flowers. If they did, my house would smell like a giant apple bloosom. I have made so many edible apple blossoms the past few weeks that almost every surface in my kitchen is covered with the cute little flowers. There is one in almost any color you can imagine. It is a beautiful sight!
I love making royal icing flowers because there is something very soothing about making them. It is as if I almost become entranced and lose all track of time. I guess this is a baker’s version of a kid playing an XBox or something.
Supplies for Edible Apple Blossom Flowers:
I could make apple blossoms all day long. Well, I did actually. I made them for two days and I think you should to. They are perfect little flowers that can be used in so many different ways. I use them cookies mostly but they are great additions to cakes and cupcakes. Sweet Sugar Belle uses them as decorations on cookies like on this little hula girls hair.
If you want to make them different sizes, just use different sized petal tips because there are many sizes to chose from. I think tip 101 s is the smallest.
Once you start decorating with edible apple blossoms, you may want to mix things up a bit and make some of them dry with a slight curve. A curved flower is very easy to accomplish if you have a paper towel roll to use as a flower form. Just cut the roll in half long ways and place the parchment paper squares with the wet flowers in the cut paper towel roll and let them dry completely. They will dry with a slight curve which will add some character to your project when you are ready to decorate.
Did you know that you can easily add a touch of elegance to a cookie by adding an edible apple blossom? Well you can. Just outline and flood a cookie and add an edible apple blossom and tadah! You have a pretty cookie with very little effort.
I know some of you are making these along with me so as soon as we work through all of the flower templates, I will show you how I store mine. I would love to keep them in jars like I do my royal icing transfers but, I don’t want them to break. I will do a tutorial and show you how I keep them nice and safe until time to decorate.
