I guess you could say I’m on a fruit kick, after yesterday’s post. But I’m not a health nut (if you can’t tell). So, it’s safe to assume that if there is fruit involved, something sweet isn’t far behind [insert head to toe covered sprinkle cake here. haha].
That said, I made these pineapple flowers to sit on top of a store bought cake to make it a little more special. They’re really fun to make, are completely edible, and taste great. They’re like little pineapple chips.
Bonus! You don’t need to be a pro in the kitchen to knock these out of the park. They’re easy peasy. Promise! Want to make a batch?
You’ll just need a fresh pineapple and a handful of basic kitchen items.
As for the tutorial, you can read thorough the entire step by step process for these guys over on Project Wedding. But, here’s the gist, before you head over…
Of course this project is great for weddings, but if you’re not getting ready to walk down the aisle, this edible cake topper would work for just about any other occasion that you need a cake for…birthdays, an anniversary, Valentine’s Day, etc.
I even added some of the leftover flowers to my ice cream one night, so there is truly no occasion too small.

Think you’ll give these pineapple flowers a try? What else could you use them for, aside from cake toppers? Any ideas?
