Flowers are nature's most intricate candies.
When we think of eating from the garden, we tend to think of fruits, roots, greens, and herbs. But flowers are nature's most intricate candies. With a range of flavors from sweet to spicy, flowers not only add bright and elegant beauty to any dish but can impart culinary and nutritional diversity as well. Always gorgeous fresh in a salad, some blooms can also be candied or cooked. If you are what you eat, then why not become a beautiful flower?
Each year, Hudson Valley Seeds commissions contemporary artists from around the United States to tell the story of a particular seed variety. That art and those seeds combine to create an Art Pack, a unique celebration of the diverse stories of seeds and their stewards.
Artwork by Rebecca Weld. The art for this pack is a real, fully edible cookie. Rebecca, a.k.a The Cookie Architect, constructs elaborate cookies as striking art. This cookie was made in the quatrefoil shape of our Art Packs and is layered with realistic, sugar-spun flowers.
