how to crystallize flowers

Posted by cik ayu at 9:23 PM

remember last time cik ayu pernah crytallize kan daisies. boleh tgk kat sini (ye ke daisy tuh?). hehe.. so here how you can crytallize your flowers. it's super easy!

Ingredients:

  • One extra-large egg white
  • Water
  • Superfine sugar (store-bought or homemade - To make superfine sugar put white granulated sugar into a food processor and pulse until fine, usually 20-40 pulses will do. )
  • Edible flowers

Steps:

  1. Combine one extra-large egg white (at room temperature) with a few drops of water and beat lightly until the white shows a few bubbles.
  2. Using a small paint brush, paint a thin layer of egg white onto both sides of a clean, dry petal.
  3. Gently place the petal into a shallow bowl of superfine sugar to coat the bottom of the petal.
  4. Sprinkle sugar on top to cover the top of the petal.
  5. Gently shake off any excess sugar.
  6. Lay the petal on waxed paper to dry. Let the flowers dry completely; they should be free of any moisture. This could take 8 to 36 hours.

wanna be amazed? just look how pretty these crystallized roses..
