DIY: Sugared Flowers

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.

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!
