Can someone help with the difference with Rose Spirits and Rosewater. I have a recipe to use rosewater but only have rose spirits. I know you can use Rose Spirits to mix with lustre but what would happen if I used in a recipe. Topping for White Chocolate Rose Scones. Thanks

Rosewater is used for flavouring. Rose spirits has a very high alcohol content and is used for painting on cakes when the liquid needs to evaporate quickly. I don't think rose spirits is ever used for for flavouring - but I could be wrong on that.

You can purchase at cake decorating supply shops.

In the end I flavoured with strawberry and scattered small rose petals over and they taste divine.
