This weekend I have decided to unleash my until-now-well-hidden domestic baking goddess, and whip up a frenzy of nature inspired delectable morsels, although I have a very real fear that no one will eat them.
I have decided to let flowers be my inspiration, and will be making:
- Rose petal jam
- Lavender cupcakes
Yes, both containing the petals of said flowers.
My hubby doesn’t believe me when I assure him they are edible and thinks I am trying to poison him. I walked past his office before and he was Googling something that looked suspiciously like the National Poisons website or some such but he quickly minimised the window when he knew I was there. Honestly. Where is the trust?
I am fairly confident I will find takers for the lavender cupcakes, because let’s face it; the men in my family are not fussy when it comes to baked goods. As long as it contains flour, sugar and some sort of flavouring (Icing is a welcome bonus) they’re happy. My purple iced cupcakes should be snapped up.
The rose petal jam I’m not so confident about although I’m working on a theory that it will taste like Turkish Delight chocolates (aren’t they made out of roses or some such?) and my mother and brother are both partial to Turkish delight, so I should be able to offload a jar or two their way.
Oh and also, because I have two buckets kindly donated by one of my lovely followers Yvette, I’ll be making plum jam.
I am looking forward to trying something new and eager to see (and taste) the results.
Now, where did I leave my apron?
