    Edible Leaves for Wedding Cakes

    Buy edible leaves for your wedding cake. Your wedding is the most special day of your life. You want it to be perfect and so do we. Maddocks Farm Organics offers a range of beautiful and unusual edible leaves with which to decorate your wedding cake. These are also perfect for cupcakes and for garnishing cocktails.

    Different leaves work well in different situations so perhaps start by reading our guide to using edible  leaves on Wedding Cakes here.

    As can be seen with the stunning cake by http://beesbakery.co.uk these particular leaves work best when adhered to cakes using butter cream…. similar to a petal confetti technique.   If you are planning on serving a naked cake or would like leaves to garnish a cake that you require to sit out for several hours then something more robust like Rosemary or Lavender sprigs would hold much better. Sweet Cicely Fern is a lovely tasty addition to cakes but needs to be used flat as it will wilt if left dangling over the edge of a cake for several hours on a hot day.

    Options

    Mixed edible leaves in various styles and colours. As seen on the stunning cake from http://beesbakery.co.uk, a selection of tasty edible flowers of all flavours and colours. Available to buy from March to October.

    Sweet Cicely Fern 10 x fronds. These are sent out as whole fronds which can be broken up into smaller pieces for cupcakes etc.

    Rosemary Sprigs – non flowering. 10 x sprigs of approximately 14cm in length. Available March to October.

    Lavender Sprigs – non flowering. 20 x sprigs of approximately 7cm in length. Available May to October.

    Basil Sprigs – Miniature robust basil which holds well on cakes. Available July-September

    Our edible leaves are sent out by overnight courier. For a Saturday wedding we suggest ordering them to arrive on the Friday and they will be fine refrigerated until putting on the cake the next day. You can choose the delivery date and address when you order. To avoid disappointment we would suggest pre-order them well in advance as we are a small firm which is lucky enough to have a great reputation so we sell out of flowers every week during the summer.

    If you’d like any advice on using edible leaves then do email Jan at maddockfarmorganics@gmail.com

    Edible Petal Confetti

    Petal confetti cakes are this year’s big trend and very popular for both weddings and vintage tea parties. Our edible petal confetti has recently featured in BRIDES and Rock n Roll Brides.

    Edible flower confetti, or flowerfetti, is a wonderful way of producing a stunning and natural looking cake with complete ease. What more could you want than a beautiful wedding cake that takes only 5 minutes to decorate and costs a fraction of the amount a sugar crafted cake would.

    This large box contains enough flowers to provide petals to cover two 8 inch cakes. We supply our edible petal confetti in rainbow colours and can also pop some wee violas in there as highlights but if you wanted it in just one colour or shade, or one type of flower as shown below with orange calendulas or blue and purple cornflowers then include your preferences in the ‘comments section’ when you order and we will pick accordingly. We pick every box to order.

    Alternatively scatter one boxful on a cake and the other on salads, in ice cubes, in jellies, on puds, over rice dishes etc etc…… you name it.

    All the wedding cakes on this page are made by the very fabulous Bees Bakery if you’d like somebody else to do all the hard work for you.

    Buy edible flowers for crystallising

    Edible flowers for crystallising.

    This box contains specially chosen flowers that are suitable for crystallising or ‘sugaring’. Some flowers such as cornflowers, dianthus, violas, bellis daisies, pansies and roses work particularly well crystallised and some flowers just don’t like it at all. As with all our flowers we pick to order so you can choose the colour and style that that you’d like as long as they are in season.

    If you crystallise edible flowers using Gum Arabic then they will last for several months in a dark, dry airtight container. If you use egg white then they will last for a few days. See below for instructions on how to crystallise flowers.

    Crystallised flowers are a lovely way of preserving flowers for winter weddings; for a lovely frosted finish on summer wedding cakes and for cupcakes or other desserts. They are also stunning on home made wedding favours.

    We do two size boxes of flowers for crystallising. The standard size box which contains 50 flowers suitable for crystallising and the party size box which contains 80 flowers plus some sweet cicely fern or other herb sprigs suitable for crystallising such as thyme, rosemary or mint.  We call this larger box the party box because crystallising edible flowers takes a wee bit of time to do well and this box is perfect for inviting a couple of mates round, opening a bottle of wine, popping on some music and crystallising together.

    You can preorder flowers for crystallising here and you can choose the exact date that you would like them delivered when you order.
