We all “oooh” and “ahhh” over those cute candy bouquets, cookie bouquets, and fruit bouquets we see at shops and online. They are pretty cute, but can be pricey. I purchased one at the florists on my way to see my daughter-in-law and new born grandbabies at the hospital a few months ago, I paid a pretty penny for the smallest size. I kicked myself for not having thought of making an edible bouquet myself. I’m pretty sure I could have come up with something just as adorable if not better.
Now with Valentine’s Day fast approaching I thought it would be nice to put some together for friends and family. I scoured the web for inspiration. I was surprised to find that edible bouquets are not limited to candy, fruits, and cookies! There are cupcake bouquets, rice krispy treat bouquets, and even meat bouquets! I guess you if you can skewer any kind of food and stick it on a piece of styro foam you can turn it into a bouquet!
