I love making pretty food, it is always so inviting and particularly when it comes to Mother's Day, I think a pretty gift like this will be well received. I know Instagram loved it! And hopefully your mum will too. We did a live video with this recipe (check it out)! You will find it super easy. Use any white chocolate you can access, the Ruby callets are available at European Foods for Perth people, or Savour School online have them for the entire country!
As for the edible flowers, I often forage in my own garden, but for the video I used Petite Ingredients dried edible blooms. I had the mint in my garden and surprisingly it stays bright green for days. Sprinkles are widely available wherever cake decorating ingredients are sold.
I chose to use lavender oil to flavour the chocolate, but I would highly recommend wild orange, peppermint, geranium, tangerine or lemon. You will need more than 2 drops if you use anything but lavender or geranium.
SO there you have it. Happy Mother's Day. Enjoy your gifting. You can always go floral with a big bouquet as well...perfect!
