It’s spring! Do you know what spring brings? Flowers! There are so many beautiful flowers you can create for your cakes; they are such a wonderful addition and are appropriate for just about any occasion. You can make them in just about any medium as well: buttercream icing, royal icing, gum paste, fondant, or even modeling chocolate!
You can learn how to create many of the beautiful Wilton Method flowers in the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating classes at your local stores. But how do you get your gorgeous flowers from the class back to your home? I’ve personally seen many students use empty egg cartons, but that solution is not ideal.
Wilton’s Form-N-Save Flower Storage Set is just the answer for your flower drying, storing, and transporting needs. These trays are designed with cake decorators in mind! They are specifically shaped to hold all sorts of flowers in many shapes and sizes.
The “wave” tray is my favorite; it’s perfect for drying royal icing flowers to give them even more dimension! The other two trays offer a multitude of different sizes and shapes to help protect those flowers you worked so hard to create.
These trays are also great for long term storage and they stack on top of each other for workplace organization. They protect your flowers from dust and some UV exposure, so your flowers will stay beautiful longer! After you use your flowers on your sweet treats, these trays have a smooth finish for easy hand washing.
It’s never been easier to keep your edible flowers! My personal favorite is the primrose, and it dries perfectly on the wave tray.
What’s your favorite edible flower?
