Spring is almost here, flowers have started to bloom and there are so many gorgeous recipes out there to reflect the spring floral vibes, whether you use real flowers or make them out of icing.
If you want to test your piping skills then try these floral icing tutorials from Cakes By Lynz and decorate some cupcakes with roses, peonies and hydrangeas.
This recipe from Wilton is for all of you out there who prefer a monochrome, minimalist floral style. You can bake the bundt cake using your favourite recipe and then use a decorating tip to create simple flowers for an elegant effect.
Don’t fancy icing flowers yourself? Then you can buy beautiful pre-made flowers and use them to decorate your bakes instead. These petits fours from Martha Stewart using bought blossoms are so beautiful and look perfect for the upcoming sakura season.
I love the look of real edible flowers on cakes and this simple celebration cake from Cupcake Jemma is upgraded with the use of brightly coloured petals mixed into the icing.
I feel like this jelly from Jamie Oliver just looks like spring/summer has exploded onto your table and I love it. The jelly is filled with fruits and then adorned with an abundance of vibrant edible flowers. If you don’t like the idea of prosecco in your jelly then you can make another elderflower style jelly and follow the instructions after that.
