Posted by Annita on February 16, 2007
These delicate decorations are simply fresh flowers preserved using egg whites and sugar.Once dried,they will last for several weeks.If you don’t want to use it immediately, store them betweens tissue paper sheets in a box and keep in a warm dry place.
Choose small fresh flowers for this,i prefer using edible flowers.If you ask a florist ,they’ll help you in selecting edible flowers.This can be done with small fruits,herbs or fruit leaves.
What do you need :-
Lightly beaten egg whites
Small paint brush
Dry the flowers and leaves with kitchen tissues,and leave a small stem intact if possible.Place some caster sugar in a plate.Using a fine paint brush,paint both sides of the flower petals and leaves and stems with lightly beaten egg white.
Spoon the sugar over the flower petals to coat them evenly on both sides.
Carefully shake the flower to remove any excess sugar and gently arrange the coated petals on a wire rack covered with kitchen paper.Store in a warm dry place until dry.
