Fun Princess Dress

Princess Dress

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.

Recipe

– 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)

Method

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!
