Archive: Rose of Shrewsbury


Recommended Posts



A favorite confection dating back to the 1500s, the town of Shrewsbury in Shropshire was famed for their delicately rose flavored cakes (which have more the consistency of what Yanks would call a cookie); and as well as being introduced to Colonial society by First Lady Louisa Catherine Adams, the delicacy was also given further fame in William Congreve's play The Way of the World. Our version is a lovely gourmand with a sheer whisper of floral...tangy light Sweetheart Roses and nutmeg are folded into distilled butter extract and coconut cream, then finished with a touch of fluffy cocoa butter.


SWEETHEART ROSES ~ Self confidence, strong aphrodisiac properties, attracts affection & love, fertility, divination/clairvoyance.
NUTMEG ~ Strengthens clairvoyance, luck, money, health, fidelity.
BUTTER ~ Nurturing, soothing, eases troubled relationships. Goddess energy.
COCOA BUTTER ~ Lightens emotions, evokes feelings of love.
COCONUT CREAM ~ Protection, purification, receptivity.
