The key? Use only edible flowers. The kind that are sold in food stores and green markets. They may cost a little more than you think they should. But I promise you,they're worth every scent cent.
The flowers sold at flower shops like Fly Me To The Moon Florists are intended for decoration only. So don't even think about putting them in ice cubes.
Here's How to Make Floral Ice Cubes From Edible Flowers:
