    Rita~'s Note:

    You will need 1 Thin artist's paintbrush. Make a masterpiece by simply garnishing a plain cake with candies flowers or add these to a cup of tea or a cocktail. They can be stored in an airtight container and put in the freezer for up to a year. Use flavored vodka like cherry, strawberry, raspberry whatever you choose.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 egg white (please use powdered egg whites to avoid salmonella)
    • 3 -6 drops 100% proof vodka, flavored (optional)
    • superfine sugar (caster)
    • petals violets, begonias, pansies, Johnny-jump-ups, rose petals, lilac, borage, pea, pinks, scented geraniums (Amout depends on size of flowers can be between 30-90 petals)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Beat egg whites until frothy. Add a couple of drops of vodka to help the flowers dry quicker.
    2. 2
      Using fresh picked flowers, paint each flower individually with beaten egg white using the artist's paintbrush.
    3. 3
      When thoroughly coated, sprinkle with fine sugar and place on the wire rack to dry. Flowers are completely dry when stiff and brittle to the touch.
    4. 4
      They should be free of moisture. This could take 12 to 36 hours, depending on humidity. To hasten drying, you may place the candied flowers in an oven with a pilot light overnight, or in an oven set at 150 degrees to 200 degrees F with the door ajar for a few hours.
    5. 5
      Store the dried, candied flowers in airtight containers until ready to use. They will keep for as long as a year.

      I did this last night with violets, nasturium and borage flowers. I wasn't sure if you are supposed to paint the front and back of the petals, or just the front. I painted the back as well and am not sure the flowers will come off of my drying rack now....so I will try this again, cuz I'm sure it is my error. I mixed a tad bit of cotton candy flavoring in the vodka....tasty! Good thing there's only 3-6 drops of vodka or I'd just drink the egg wash right down....just kidding. Thanks, I will try it again! Update...The more delicate flowers tore a bit when removing from the rack, but stronger flowers were fine. I tried this again with Marigolds...instead of painting...since they are sturdy flowers - I dunked the flower in the egg wash. They were just beautiful. Thanks again!

      East to follow instructions, and the results are gorgeous! I also had a very hard time getting them off of the rack, and lost at least half of them.
