About Frolic & Fare

Frolic & Fare is a garden, food & lifestyle blog created by artist Sarah Buckley. Here, Sarah blends her passions for:

  • Food Photography: Food becomes art. Be captivated, then consume. Work with Sarah.
  • Gardening & Foraging:  Join me on a wild harvest, unearthing nature's hidden gems. Let your basket overflow with sunshine-kissed berries, earthy mushrooms, and fragrant herbs. This is a culinary adventure waiting to be savored.
  • Preserving Ephemeral Beauty: Let us capture the fleeting magic of wild foods, transforming them into syrups, sauces, and vinegar that infuse your culinary creations with unexpected delights.
  • Edible Alchemy: Forget ordinary meals. At Frolic & Fare, every recipe is an opportunity to weave floral narratives, transforming simple ingredients into food fit for the gods. From the peppery zing of nasturtiums to the delicate sweetness of violas.

Find edible flowers

Sourcing edible flower petals doesn't have to be confusing or difficult! As a floral baker and self proclaimed flowervore I want to share where we get safe edible flower petals for cookies and cake decorating. From a savory edible flower salad to cake decorating, sourcing flowers is easy - but we'll share how we find flowers to buy safe for human consumption to add a beautiful garnish or fresh flavor safely. Adding florals to our desserts is how we add the beauty of garden flowers effortlessly, the perfect personal touch. Find out everything you need to know about locating food safe flowers.
