    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
