Mother's Day is rapidly approaching and there is flurry of spending on flowers and afternoon tea experiences. Online marketplace Groupon has taken the opportunity to combine the two to create the ultimate experience for mums on their special day. They've teamed up with experimental food artists Blanch and Shock, to create the Yummy Mummy Bouquet - a floral masterpiece featuring afternoon tea classics transformed into traditional Mother’s Day blooms.
As a special gift this Mother’s Day, Groupon is giving one lucky customer the chance to win the tasty edible bouquet creation for their mum – enter at www.gr.pn/bouquet. The Yummy Mummy Bouquet is entirely edible! The bouquet took a total of 70 hours to plan, design and construct, with a team of three using 10kg flour, 3kg butter, 5kg sugar and 40 eggs in the process.
Almost half a metre tall (40cm), the bouquet feeds a family of four. Key ingredients include:
- Battenberg Hydrangeas
- Buttercup Scones with rhubarb jam and cream icing
- Tulip Cucumber sandwiches
- Cupcake Gerberas
- Pea shoot foliage
- Prosecco ‘water’ in the vase
Mike Knowlden, Chef and Co-Director at Blanch and Shock, said: “This project has provided us with a great opportunity to experiment and transform some British afternoon tea classics into a beautiful bouquet, all of which could be eaten. We hope the Yummy Mummy Bouquet gives one deserving mum and her children a lovely treat this Mother’s Day.” Check out the video showing you how to recreate the cupcake gerbera.
I got the chance to sample a cupcake gerbera which was beautifully packaged in a tea cup complete with a bag of tea. I love the presentation and design. The cupcake was tasty too! The competition closes on Monday 16th March at midnight so make sure you enter before then by clicking on this link www.gr.pn/bouquet
