Types of Edible Flowers

Do you know that there is an Edible flowers that we can use as a decorations on our cakes, cupcakes, and etc? It's save money and time.

There are a number of edible flowers out there that would not only add a unique tasty element but would also be quite attractive on the cake as decoration. For instance:
# Lavender has a lovely aroma,but did you know that it can be eaten as well?
#The white flowers on mint plants or the red blossoms on pineapple sage are also great visual choices.
#The cream colored blooms on lemon verbena are a great choice.

#Marigolds and roses can be as well.

**However, it is important not to purchase them from a florist as flowers are usually treated with a chemical there. Pick the flowers naturally from your yard or area that you know is safe from pesticides.

Cream Of Tartar

What is Cream Of Tartar?
Cream of tartar is the common name for potassium hydrogen tartrate, an acid salt that has a number of uses in cooking. Cream of tartar is best known in our kitchens for helping stabilize and give more volume to beaten egg whites. It is the acidic ingredient in some brands of baking powder. It is also used to produce a creamier texture in sugary desserts such as candy and frosting, because it inhibits the formation of crystals. It is used commercially in some soft drinks, candies, bakery products, gelatin desserts, and photography products. Cream of tartar can also be used to clean brass and copper cookware.

Substitute for Cream Of Tartar?
If you are beating eggs whites and don't have cream of tartar, you can substitute white vinegar (in the same ratio as cream of tartar, generally 1/8 teaspoon per egg white).
