Cheese With Edible Flowers
• A colorful assortment of edible flower petals
• A clean paint brush
• 1 packet of unflavored gelatin (or a gelatin substitute)
• Boiling water
• A block of cheese with a smooth surface (Avoid swiss, brie and other soft cheeses)
Prepare the Gelatin
Pour the contents of the gelatin packet into a small bowl and add boiling water until all of the powder has dissolved. Let the gelatin cool to room temperature.
Arrange the Petals on the Cheese
Using the gelatin as an adhesive, paint a thin layer on the cheese and then stick on the petals.
After you have arranged and pasted on petals to cover the cheese, paint on another thin coat of gelatin to secure them and to add a bit of shine to the petals to showcase your petal art.
Have fun experimenting with different flowers to create various patterns and color schemes. Serve cheeses at room temperature.
