My big brother had a birthday, and so I brought him a cake – my now-standard almond with raspberry filling and buttercream. As is also becoming my MO, I went out into the garden to see what edible flowers and greenery were available to decorate the cake. I passed on the asparagus and chives, and settled on strawberry blossoms, violets, mint, and pea shoots. All the greenery held up to transport and a few hours of waiting around to be eaten, except the pea shoots – those wilted within an hour. Something else, next time.
