At the Table: Delicate Florals, Edible Blooms and Mikasa Endearment Dinnerware
I’m at the table with edible blooms and the delicate florals
of the Mikasa Endearment Dinnerware.
A soft palette and spray of delicate flowers surround a single center flower of the Mikasa Endearment Dinnerware collection.
And graceful scalloped edges are highlighted with gold on this classic floral pattern, back by popular demand.
Blooming napkins are folded into a diagonal pocket for Mikasa Cameo Gold Flatware. You can find easy how-to directions for this napkin fold here.
A quilted coverlet in a patchwork of floral and calico prints, multitasks as a tablecloth for an old-fashioned and soft foundation for the dinnerware.
And a teacup provides a pedestal for rose frosted cupcakes, stacked on ruffled cake plates for a centerpiece of edible blooms and flowers.
I used Wilton 1M tip and 2D tips (open and closed star tips, one for each color of frosting) to make the frosting roses. To make an easy rose with frosting, fill a piping bag fitted with your tip and buttercream frosting. Hold your tip above the center of your cupcake at a 90° angle and squeeze out frosting to form a star. Without releasing pressure, raise tip slightly as you pipe a circle of frosting around the star in a tight complete rotation, until you reach the outer edge of the cupcake to create the rose.
Rose leaves are tucked between the cupcake and cupcake liner for a fun and realistic touch, served on an Endearment oval platter.
Other serving pieces in the Mikasa Endearment collection include a vegetable bowl. . .
Creamer and covered sugar bowl. . .
And salt & pepper set.
