I am so in love with all of the Spring blossoms happening outside. Each year, I look forward to the one or two precious weeks in early Spring when a bunch of branch blossoms are in full display. Unfortunately, they fade as fast as they bloom. I wish there were a way to preserve their beauty.
After a few google searches, I found a way. Surprisingly, this method is easier than I thought. Here’s what I discovered- Sugared Flowers!
I made sugared flowers out of quince blossoms and carnations. However, you can literally use any types of flowers and they will all turn out beautifully. The materials needed are simple- egg white, sugar and perhaps a small paint brush (I used my fingers).
There are actually a lot of edible flowers out there such as pansies and many variety of roses. These also include different types of Spring blossoms like the ones that I used here, Quince. Please keep in mind to only use flowers that you know are safe and free of pesticides. For a full list of edible flowers, please see HERE.
See how to steps below…
Sugared flower can be stored up to three months. I used a mixed of fresh and sugared flowers to decorate a plain frosted cake.
How beautiful is this cake?! It doesn’t take a professional cake decorator to create something stunning as you can see here. These sugared flowers would look great on cupcakes as well. Perfect for birthdays, a girl baby shower, bridal parties or even for Mother’s Day which is just around the corner.
Love me some gold flatware.
This was probably one of the prettiest projects I’ve done. I couldn’t help but kept clicking away! It was very hard to narrow down the photos.
I can’t wait to make more sugared flowers with other types of blooms. So fun and simple!
Let me know what you think of this beautiful Spring blossom project. Also- would you give this a try? Would love to hear your thoughts!
