I've always been a fan of mason jars and they are trendier now than ever. These Edible Flower Cakes are perfect for Mother's day and any sentimental special occasion. Are you a part of a gardening club? Bring a batch of these to your next club meeting. 

These decadent chocolate cakes have been baked in pint size mason jars and covered with edible Oreo soil. Fresh cut flowers complete the illusion, making them look exactly like miniature plants growing in mason jars. These are a lovely to look at as to eat. Yum!

No temperatures?
Cooking temps will vary depending on which cake mix you use. Just follow the temp. on the box and be sure to check the cakes every so often so they don't burn.
Love it!
Hey congrats on your win in Scoochmaroo Challenge for Mother's Day!!
This is sooo adorable! Definitely a must try :)
Thank you! :)
Thats pretty much the only way I have ever had nopales. I get this meat rub called Pappy's and sprinkle it on. Getting hungry thinking about it. Where I live you can find cactus around very easily. I have never bought any, just pick it fresh. I usually cook it the same heat and time as chicken. Its great sliced up with bbq'd jalepenos in chicken tacos.
So beautiful and delicious!
Thanks Penolopy!
Hey those look awesome. Gonna try this. Maybe even a yellow cake and a couple cactus leaves for a desert looking dessert. Then can throw the cactus right onto the grill for bbq nopales. We really enjoy the ideas you come up with, keep up the good work. : ) <br>
I love nopales! I've never had them barbecued before. Sounds delicious!
