you can eat many flowers, i often put roseflower leaves in cocktails or over salad for a nice look. you can also make jelly with it - why not with cherryblossoms? ;)
the cake looks like it screams "EAT ME! EAT ME INSTANTLY!"

*phew* i think i´ll have a cup of tea and some cake right now....

Hi Mimie.
It's so beautiful, isn't it?
Maybe you can create new soap with the inspiration of Sakura cake???

indeed i had sacher-torte (don´t know if there´s an english word for it...) it´s *yummyummy* and it´s a THICK and RICH chocolate cake, spread with jelly and covered with chocolate. i LOVE it!
plus i had a black tea, which i truly love most.

Wow those look amazingly beautiful.
I wouldn't want to eat those, just keep them to look at.
Who am i kidding? I wouldn't be able to resist. (and most likely they won't stay looking beautiful if you keep them forever.)
Lovely.

Hi madhatter.
Yes, I know "sacher-torte" as I used to travel to Vienna and Germany on business. I like the cake, too. Actually, I had it when our co-workers were visiting us here in Tokyo from German HQ. Umm, yum yum!!

*Kumi said...

Hi ismoyo.
I know they're too pretty to eat!!
But who cannot resist?
Not me!
I love eating, too!
He he he!

*Kumi said...

Bonjour, Natacha.
Umm, yes, it's an art, too.
Isn't it so beautiful just looking at?

Thanks for sharing this combination of sweet and tea. So pretty, and I bet the tea is delicious. :)

Oh wow! I hope they taste at least half as good as they look. Yum!

anne said...

What a pretty dessert - what is it made of?

*Kumi said...

Hi Kathleen Marie.
The tea has a beautiful smell from Sakura. Every time you leave a comment, I always remember my days in Lake Mary, FL! Thanks for visiting again!

*Kumi said...

Hi Larissa.
I didn't try, so I'm not sure the taste. I hope it's yum, too.
But I feel so much happiness as long as I look at this beautiful sweets!

*Kumi said...

Hi Anne.
I guess it's a kind of jelly cake.
It didn't have any recipe so I'm just guessing!!
