I recently went to a foraging class and learned a lot of new things! Near the end of the class, we were served dandelion cupcakes with little violets on top. They were so cute, I duplicated them at home.
It’s not really a recipe per se, but just general directions.
Pick a handful or two of dandelions then wash and dry them thoroughly. Pull off just the yellow petals (the green has a stronger bitter taste you don’t really want in a cupcake.)
Mix up your favorite cupcake recipe, stir in the yellow petals, then bake like normal.
Let cool, frost and add an edible flower or two on top for decoration. Some flower ideas: pansies, violets, violas, dianthus, lilac, bachelor buttons, hollyhocks, roses… the list goes on! :)
