I don't know about dusting with sugar but you can dust your gumpaste flowers with petal dust. I bought mine from global sugar art.

It's called crystalized flowers. You want to make sure that if you are putting sugar on the edges that it will become edible to guests. You must absolutely make sure that your rose petals are food-safe type, pesticide free.

You will use egg whites and wisk them gently. Paint on the egg white to the edges of the petals, take the sugar and over the bowl, scoop the sugar onto the petal and gently shake off. Lay on paper towels to dry.

So, if it's not individual petals she wants, but whole roses, then again make sure the roses are pesticide free and experiement with gently dipping into the egg white or painting the egg white on. thumbs_up.gif
