When you’re a chocoholic and you’re running on empty, non-edible objects begin looking a lot like chocolate. Soil in plant pots start to look an awful lot like crumbs of chocolate cake. Ooh, is that an African violet plant in a terra cotta pot? Give me a glass of milk and a fork, please. No, you’re not dreaming. It’s a completely edible, five-layer Blooming Flower Pot Cake.
We knew that violets were edible and could be used to add an extra ounce of shishi poopoo to a dish. But when you get to eat the leaves, soil and pot too, that’s pretty incredible. See how your gift recipient reacts when she thinks she’s just getting a small plant on a plate. Get your camera ready for the big reveal, when she finds out she can eat the entire thing. She’d better share, though.
