This recipe was beyond my baking abilities but it was fun to make nevertheless.
I didn't know what baking foil was so I used parchment paper. Most of the flowers
sank to the middle of the batter during baking unfortunately. We liked the flavor of the
cake recipe given. I used a variety of flowers and flowering herbs: violets, spray roses, lemon verbena, etc. I would *not* recommend using the flowers from mint. It completely overpowered everything. All I could taste was mint, mint and more mint. My fault! Thanks for posting. It is a lovely recipe! Reviewed for NA*ME tag.
