There's something about flowers that reminds us of love and nature, so much so that we've seen them garnish our pad thai and bloom on our sparkling garden cocktails. But what if we were to tell you that some of the best Seattle cookies come with edible flowers and herbs pressed into them? It's like spring on a plate, folks.
Created by Missy and Sabrina at the Botanical Bakery, these dainty treats are available for local delivery for $5 or free pick up at Mabel coffee shop in Ballard.
We've seen everything from the classic (and organic) shortbread cookies to chocolate "barks" and our favorite childhood candy — the lollipop.
But the best part is all of them come pressed with seasonal flowers and herbs as Mother Nature provides, so you know it's going to be one-of-a-kind.
You can get a dozen of their delectable classic cookies for $30. They are also available in the gluten-free variety.
You need to place the order 72 hours in advance so it can be custom-made for you.
There are perks for dropping by though. As a thank you to your local corner coffee shop, you will get a $2 gift card that you can use to buy a drink there.
Although we can't pick a favorite, their "Petal Pops" comes pretty close.
The 2-inch lollipops come in a burst of flavors like lemon, lime, orange, and other assorted bites. If you're a flower fan, you'll spot various blossoms like scented geranium, lavender, marigolds, rose petals, carnations, and micro sun daisies.
One look at these pops and you'll believe that the blooms are actually floating in the perfectly transparent candy!
You can get a set of six for $15.
Their other party-pleaser is a holiday-esque "Botanical Bark" that's available year-round. Hand-crafted in small batches, it's a tasty concoction of dark chocolate, topped with white chocolate, a hint of peppermint, and topped off with pretty petals. Yum!
If you're a flower-lover, they also take special orders and give you discounts for it.
Either way, if you've been dreaming of sunny days, and blue skies in Seattle, these treats will make you feel like spring is already here.
