How to crystallise flowers

Personally I just love flowers and I love to use them for decorating cakes. They are just so simple but transform a cake into a piece of art.

So all you need is a lightly beaten egg white, superfine caster sugar and a pastry brush.

I used violas and pansies! Just very lightly brush with egg white and sprinkle over the sugar. I placed my sugar coated pansies onto baking paper but I would probably suggest using a metal cooling rack as I found that some of the flowers had stuck to the paper once they had dried.

Leave to dry ideally overnight. And then they will be ready for decorating cakes or even cocktails!

Here’s some beautiful ideas decorated with fresh flowers!
