Please Eat the Flowers, part 2

Roses. The sweetness of a rose’s fragrance is echoed in its taste, and so roses are ideal as garnishes for desserts or other sweet dishes. Frost cupcakes with pale pink icing, then nestle a tiny rosebud in the center. Slice large red petals into thin ribbons and sprinkle them over the whipped cream that tops berry cobbler. Cover ivory-colored panna cotta with deep pink petals. And if you want to go all out, infuse the cream with the essence of roses before you complete the panna cotta recipe. Send me a note here, and I’ll tell you how to do that.
