does anyone have a good reciepe for candied flowers? was thinking of coating lavender for a cake.
I just pick the flowers, gently dip them in egg white and then in PS. Let dry on a plate and then I store them in an airthigt container in a dark place. I made cupcakes yesterday and decorated them with candied violets that I picked las summer. And they looked great and tasted good
thanks for the tips, i might try and do some lavender just to see how it works.
Egensinnig, how long do they keep? I have a garden full of violets ( drive me mad all over th place) and would like to make some use out of the monsters
Moondance - sorry for the late reply!
I picked and candied mine during July and August 2009 and thy looked and tasted great last Sunday on my daughters birthday cupcakes. Just store them in a cool, dark place and they will last for years actually.
