Here at LENZO, we have definitely been inspired by flower power! Edible flowers are a definite trend at the moment, especially when it comes to making tasty treats look even tastier!
Whether it be a dish, dessert or drink- flowers are a creative and popular garnish for any occasion and can add an instant wow factor! They are also super healthy and a colourful, fun alternative to any artificial colours, sweeteners or preservatives that may usually be used in certain foods.
In a world of the urban foodie blogger and where Instagramming or Snapchatting your food is almost a pre-requisite to eating out, we're definitely a society that eats with our eyes - hence, the edible flower trend is perfect simply because it LOOKS. AMAZING!
Below are some deliciously fun and creative examples of how Edible Flowers is a trend to WATCH at the moment! (We doubt you'll be able to look away anyway)
