Love these~

Little pearls of frosted sugared lavender:) I made that cake again I like so much..to take to friends..
You can find the recipe here..



But in the interim..I had found these food decorations at Home Sense..They are from France and they are lovely~I think they spurred me on to make more cake:)

Look how cute..no plastic extras..you cut the spout you want..or remove..I liked that idea..
I recommend them if you find them..don't bite down on them..just let them melt in your mouth..like little candies..

  3. Your cake with 'Graines de Lavande' looks heavenly. I've not seen the lavender graines here where I live. I will have to shop with more awareness, but that could be another excuse to return to Provence.Love the little viola flower sitting on top. Keep baking I love your recipes.

  6. Good morning..I am always tickled pink to find things from Provence here..and since it was in a chain store I thought many of you could find them..reasonable too:)
    Have a great day.

  7. The pearls are just beautiful! Of course they would come from France. I had to stock up on beautiful foodie decorations when I was in Paris a couple of years ago. Fortunately, hubby supports me in my "addictions"!
    The cake is just gorgeous and your pictures are always so beautiful.

  8. Monique, I've had the lemon pearls, will need to look for the lavender. A friend goes to Paris for Christmas each year. Perhaps she can find them. ;-)
    Looks beautiful and delicious.......Sarah

  10. You make these look too beautiful to eat. Just last night I was "pinning" (should have been packing) and found the cutest edible butterflies and dragonflies. I can't wait to get settled in Florida and bake something that just needs these.
    We are leaving for FLA tomorrow and will be there for quite a while because we just found out our daughter is expecting again.
    Please email your address when you get to Florida and I will send you my book.
    Take care and don't eat too much chocolate.

  28. I bought these 2 summers ago in France and have not used them yet! Shame on me! you have captured their glory and inspired me to use them! I do sugar violets from my garden every summer, but there was something ultra special about these - and about so many of the little dragees and mini confections in France and Italy!
