There are a handful of edible flowers in the world like hibiscus, pansies, gardenias and roses...but hydrangeas are not among them. Hydrangeas are actually considered moderately toxic. The best way to eat any flower in my opinion is a sugar flower, of course with chocolate cake crumbs acting as dirt and an orange fondant clay pot!
This flower pot was a small individual sized cake made for a friend who is an avid gardener. I thought it would be an appropriate way to show appreciation for her hobby while celebrating her birthday.
