How to make edible flower ice cubes

Last week I showed you how I make my version of Deliciously Ella’s Vegan Raw Berry Cheesecake. I decorated my mini cheesecakes with edible flowers that I bought from Maddocks Farm Organics. I had so many messages asking me about the beautiful edible flowers, I thought I’d show you the ice cubes I made.

It is as easy as it sounds…

  • I used two silicone ice-cube trays
  • For some of the cubes I put the flower in face down and then topped up with water
  • For the rest I topped the cubes up with water and picked individual flower heads from their stems and placed them gently so they were floating on top of the water.

My favourite ice cubes were the forget me nots-they turned out beautifully, their tiny detail encapsulated in ice made for the prettiest cocktails I’ve ever served up.

These would be the most perfect accompaniment to a Summer garden party. Everyone will be super impressed even though it takes very little effort.

My friend also suggested that it would be a fun idea to make a flower ice bucket so watch this space!
