Say it with flowers ….

For centuries we’ve been conveying messages of love and happiness with flowers because, lets face it, what better way has there been to say what we struggle to say to someone in person … than with a bunch of flowers?

Well, it was up to now … because I reckon its time to up the f&*king game!

Yep, its time we started to smell the roses, no I mean … EAT the roses by adding a cake in to the mix, a healthy cake of course! Now that’s real love, right?!

So, here’s a decadent recipe for you all where rose and dark chocolate flavours entwine … what a truly beautiful, fulfilling and tasty way to show some love?
