  • Prep

  • Ready In

  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.


  • A few edible flowers
  • Carnation (peppery flavor), daylily, dianthus (clove-like flavor), hibiscus, hollyhock, lavender, orange blossom, rose petals, pansies, violets.
  • Editor's Note
  • If you are concerned about the safety of using raw egg whites, you may purchase pasteurized egg white in your grocer's dairy section.



I thought this was soooo good my flowers turned in to cookies they got rather hard. once you chewed on them they turned into gum I took them too my sunday school class as a craft. Thanks!

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...
