Directions

  1. Clean and dry your flowers or petals. Use a brush to paint a thin layer of egg white onto each side of the flower petals or blossoms. Gently place them into a shallow bowl of superfine sugar and sprinkle sugar over them to coat. Remove from the bowl, and place them on a piece of waxed paper. Sprinkle some more of the sugar over them. Allow them to dry until stiff, about 8 hours. Store at room temperature in an airtight container until using.

My flowers ended up crusted with sugar and never really dried. A confrence with my mom suggested that I used too much egg white (she knew the recipe by heart!), but I won't try this again. Too much work and expensive ingredients.
