Candied Flowers

Recipe Ingredients

Method

  1. Beat egg whites until frothy. Add a couple of drops of vodka to help the flowers dry quicker.
  2. Using fresh picked flowers, paint each flower individually with beaten egg white using the artist's paintbrush. When thoroughly coated, sprinkle with fine sugar and place on the wire rack to dry.
  3. Flowers are completely dry when stiff and brittle to the touch. They can be stored in an airtight container and put in the freezer for up to a year. A simple bakery cake can be turned into a work of art by garnishing with candies flowers.

Idea: Try a chocolate cake decorated with fresh raspberries and candied rose petals.
