I’m slowly making my dreams of being a food blogger into a reality and I was so excited to be invited by Sainsbury’s to a cake decorating class host by Great British Bake-off’s Chetna Makan. This was such a wonderful experience to learn the art of cake decorating and how to incorporate Sainsbury’s new edible flowers range into everyday cooking.

Sainsbury’s are proud to support British farmers and manufacturers, they value the quality of fresh fruit and vegetables they stock. So when it came to stocking edible flowers in their stores, Sainsbury’s have continued to partner with British suppliers. As a consumer I really appreciate that Sainsbury’s work in partnership with their suppliers and growers to make sure to protect and care for our environment.

Edible flowers are perfect to decorate cakes and deserts but they also ideal for salads and garnishes on Summer style drinks. The class gave me loads of inspiration on how to jazz up my dishes for Summer and to impress my guests. For only £3.00 a box contains 30g worths of beautiful edible flowers and keep for a few days chilled in the fridge.

Top tip-  I’ve also popped some flowers in ice-cube trays to have in cocktails.

    Question: in all seriousness how long did the flowers last in the refrigerator? Does the box have a sell-by-date on them? and if so, how have days did it have left on them when you bought them? Trying to find an unbiased review on them but can’t seem to find any. Any help, much appreciated!

      Hi Kelly, sorry for the late reply. With all honesty they last up to 5 days. I had two packs and used the second in ice cubes which are great for when you have party guests.
