Thanks J. It was quite good. I had the inspiration of the flowers after I'd iced it. It was just a big bland white cake and needed something. So I googled geraniums to make sure they were harmless and edible--then picked a blossom from the garden. It made such a huge difference visually!

It is gorgeous, visually. Love your tablecloth background, too! Wow, what a combo.

I never knew that geraniums could be edible. When I was a child I went through a period of eating blue morning glories that climbed a trellis outside of our canning room. I have no idea what gave me the idea that they were edible and not poisonous. I remember enjoying the fact that some adults in the community were concerned about or put off by this performance, so that was a big motivation to continue what was at first just a satisfying of curiosity. But they did have a nice taste. I was *about* to add that it seems unusual for something naturally blue to have a good taste, but then I remembered blueberries. :-)

The seeds from the blue morning glories are reputed to have hallucenogenic properties! I know, because in my misspent youth I once took a packet of seeds, mashed them into a paste and ate them. All they gave me was a headache. God knows what chemicals the commerical seed growers treated them with.
