This week has been all about the sweet stuff that we all love and crave. I think edible flower lollipops are a great way to end off the week. The combination of sweets and flowers, which are two of my favourite things, is bound to be a winner. Janet Best, from the Sugar Bakers Bakery, is the creator of these beautiful lollipops and they are almost too pretty to eat.
The flowers, which are embedded into the lollipops, are grown indoors so that the bakers can make sure there are no toxins or bugs on them. They last pretty long too; once the flower petals are in the candy and if sealed properly, you can keep them for up to a year. I’m not sure about you, but mine definitely wouldn’t last a year.
There are a variety of flavours including; blueberry, cotton candy, key lime pie and banana. The flowers they use range from pansies, violets to lavender.
These really are something special, I love how Janet has incorporated nature into simple sweets to make them a unique and creative project.
