Rose Cake (with real edible rose petals) {click link for full recipe/tutorial}

Check out the FAQs 

  • Where can I buy rose water?

Rose water is commonly available at Middle Eastern and Mediterranean grocery stores, or at specialty grocery stores, at Whole Foods, or online. You can also check with your regular grocery store, but our two largest chains in Kansas City did not carry it.

  • Should I buy organic roses?

It is highly recommended. As always, the less chemicals/pesticides in any of our food, the better.

  • How do you wash the roses?

I popped mine in a salad spinner, but you could also rinse them however you see fit.

  • Which petals on the roses did you use?

I preferred the medium-sized petals that came from the middle of the roses. The petals on the outside seemed enormous and were often a little more flimsy. And the ones in the very center were perhaps too small and curled. But you can use whichever petals you like. It’s amazing how many petals are on a single rose!!

  • What if I don’t want to eat plain rose petals?

You can also sugar-coat them. Just brush them with a (whisked) egg white, then sprinkle with granulated sugar, and let them sit until the egg is dry.

  • Can I use dried rose petals?

Certainly! They just won’t look quite the same, and all of the above thoughts on washing/organic/etc hold true. So I would dry them yourself or purchase them from a vendor who you trust and know has not coated them with chemicals.

  • How many rose petals can I eat?

One source that I read recommended taking it easy on edible flowers if this is your first time consuming them. My friends and I did not experience any digestive issues, but still, anytime you eat something new it’s wise to be careful.

  • What if I just TOTALLY don’t want to eat rose petals?

No problemo. The buttercream tastes great with just the rose water, and you could always pick the outside petals off and not eat them. But I’d totally encourage you to at least give them a little taste test. ;)

  • Help! My rose petals won’t stick!

If you wait too long to attach the petals, the buttercream will dry a bit on the outside. But hakuna matata — just place a dab of extra buttercream on the back of the rose petal, and use it like glue to poke the petal in place.
