How do I sugar-coat
pansies for Cake Decorating?
The answer to your query is as
Lightly whisk some egg white and use
a medium sized paint brush to completely cover the clower petals and
calys. Sprinkle the flower with castor sugar. The sugar can be
coloured to match the flower if you wish, by mixing in a little petal
Shake off any excess sugar and dry
the flowers completely. Small ones can be left to dry on absorbent
paper (ie kitchen roll). Larger flowers, such as roses, wrap a piece
of wire around the stem, and dry hanging upside down from a glass or
other suitable item to avoid squashing the petals.
This information was taken from the
book Art Of Sugarcraft Series - Sugar Flowers by Nicholas Lodge -
ISBN 0-948075-11-2. Unfortunately this book is currently out of
print, but you might find it in a second hand book shop or remainder
book shop or it may be something your local library might be able to
get for you to borrow.
Good Luck !
