<p>To suspend flowers in the cubes, work in layers: Fill an ice tray (one that makes large cubes so the ice will last longer) a quarter of the way with water, add flowers facing down, and freeze.

For ice that’s especially clear, use distilled water that has been boiled and then cooled. This limits impurities and air bubbles, which make ice cloudy. <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
Use only edible flowers, such as orchids, nasturtiums, pansies, and snapdragons, that have been grown to be eaten (to ensure they haven’t been treated with chemicals). (via)</p><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

FEED YOUR SOUL

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I felt inspired by all the floral colors and Spring greens dressing every table at the Farmer’s Market.  Gazing upon gorgeous boxes of edible flowers such as organic orchids, nasturtiums, pansies and snapdragons, the idea to put a twist on my go-to couture fruit cubes was born.

This Sunday, shower your mom with flowers….INSIDE eye-candy ice cubes!  These dazzling ices deliver beauty and whimsy to any brunch cocktail and white sangria.

CHEERS AND HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY TO ALL THE MOMS OUT THERE.

FLORAL ICE CUBES

Make sure the flowers are pesticide and chemical free and clean before using.

To suspend flowers in the cubes, work in layers: Fill an ice tray that makes large cubes (to best showcase each flower) a quarter of the way with filtered water.   Add flowers facing down, and freeze. Add more filtered water to fill halfway, and refreeze. Fill to the top, and freeze again.
