Orange creamsicle cupcakes topped with lightly toasted meringue frosting. (Please send one my way.)
From The Spruce, a recipe for an orange creamsicle cocktail. They use vanilla vodka, but they say you can also use gin.
Yes, I was already hungry. Shortbread cookies from Makabi & Sons, in Oaxaca flavor (shown; "Shortbread butter cookies with rich cocoa, sweet cinnamon and a hint of cayenne"). Also available in Maroc ("with roasted pistachio, fragrant rosewater and aromatic cardamom"), Verdon ("with floral lavender") and Oxford ("with creamy vanilla and fragrant earl grey tea"), plus three other flavors, $7 for 6 cookies at the brand website. Beautyhabit has a few of the flavors too, at $9.
To celebrate “Eat What You Want Day” (although I’m pretty sure I celebrate that most days), some cooking videos. First, a 5 minute excerpt from a documentary on cooking with flowers, from Taste France magazine. Then, below the jump, Iced Lavender Vanilla Latte, followed by Rose and Pistachio Flavoured Kulfi (this recipe calls for gulkand, which is a rose petal jam, and for kulfi molds, although you can use cups or ramekins instead).
Next, we have edible flower pressed shortbread cookies (you can find the whole recipe by clicking through to YouTube; it calls for purchasing edible flowers but you can find a nice list of edible flowers here). Last, edible flower ice cubes.
Iris Liqueur from Elixir Craft Spirits in Oregon: "Iris takes its name from its main ingredient—genuine iris root. Iris root is legendary for its delicate, violet-like scent. For centuries, Florentines cultivated iris plants in their vineyards to enhance their wines, and used iris root infusions to make floral liqueurs. The precious iris (fleur-de-lis) serves as the official emblem of Florence and the aristocracy even today."
