To create this lovely flower-shaped panna cotta, we used a flower-shaped silicone mold from Wilton. Freeze the completed panna cotta in the mold to maintain each pretty petal during removal. Carefully separate the dessert from the molds while frozen, then let stand for 30 minutes to thaw before serving.
