When we hear about the great debate between fresh flowers and sugar flowers on wedding cakes, one of the common arguments used for sugar flowers is that they make the entire cake edible. Love the idea but can’t quite fork over the larger slice of your budget for your cake? Edible flowers to the rescue! There are actually several types of flowers that are safe to eat, each with a different taste making some better for sweet treats like wedding cakes or cupcakes or some with flavors more suited to savory delicacies. You can even add edible flowers to drinks for an unexpected flavor and wow factor at your wedding, not to mention that it’s just so pretty. Some of our favorite edible flowers for weddings include lavender and carnations, lovely touches for desserts with a sweet essence, hibiscus with a bit of a tart flavor and apple blossoms for fall…that taste like apples. Take a look at some of the beautiful and creative ways edible flowers can be used to enhance the look and taste of your wedding, and then go find a caterer (or florist!) and sample some for yourself!
