I’ve always fond of the image of blue pea flowers as they are organic and beautiful at the same time. It’s a strong and recognizable image among all the green leaves. In my house's garden, I can find plenty of blue pea flowers in those creeper plant growing around. So when I was wondering how to make blue color on my cake, I came up with this idea quickly. Using the blue pea flowers as my decoration on the swiss roll as well as using its color to dye my whipping cream inside-neath.
Ingredients & Method
Refer to my previous post titled "Vanilla Swiss Roll" with extra Blue pea flowers
This little blue flower is common ingredient used as natural food dye for making kuehs such as pulut tai tai and nasi kerabu (Origin from Kelantan). Squeeze 10-15 flowers with 5 tablespoon of water. Knead then filtered, the water was ready to be used to give color to my whip cream. See the picture below - Freshly plucked from my home's garden..
