The first fun facts

Everything you need to know about the pansy

Pansies can mostly be found around the cooler months in spring and fall. They got their name based on the French word “pensée” meaning “thought” and even made it on the big stage of Shakespeare’s “A Midnight Night’s Dream” where they used it for a love potion. Legend says that since they were shot with Cupid’s arrow they changed from being purely white to having small purple wounds in the centre.

If you are as love struck as us by this spring flower then here are some instructions on how to recreate this cheerful blossom on your cake. But don’t worry, in case you are not up for this challenge you can even use real ones because pansies are actually edible!

What you didn't know about the daisies

Did you get a good sleep tonight? Because Daisies surely do. The birth flower of the month April got its name from the old word “daes eage” that translates to “day’s eye”. Daisies close their petal at night for their beauty sleep and start to open in the morning to greet all the late sleepers of you! You probably saw them in their white dresses, one of their most iconic outfits, but did you know that they also come out on the grass walk in yellow, purple, orange, or red?
