As I was walking back from dropping the boys at school I saw beautiful flowers on the rosemary bushes that grow along our street. They sparked an idea and a few minutes later I was back with a pot to collect a few of the 100’s that were blooming.
I created a fun princess dress that my boys were fascinated by so hopefully it would be a hit at any dinner table.
– Mashed potato (or any white veg puree)
– Beetroot to stain the mash pink
– Rosemary flowers (or other edible flowers – rose petals could be cut for example)
1. Mold the mash into the shape of a bodice and flowing gown. I used a knife and my favourite kitchen utensils (fingers!).
2. I drew some lines into the bottom part of the dress to give it folds.
3. And then some horizontal ones to create ruffles.
4. I used some beetroot juice from my roasted beetroot to stain the bodice.
5. And then added some rosemary flowers along the ruffle line.
6. I also put a row of flowers along the bottom of the bodice.
7. Then made some little sleeves.
And added more flowers.
8. I fashioned some little buttons from mash for the bodice.
9. And realised they were a little skew-whiff so moved them into line!
All we need is some slippers and we’re ready to go to the ball ….
