Description

Sugary Crystallised Rose Petals look beautiful as a decoration on cakes and puddings and add a delicious rose flavour.

 


Scale

Ingredients

  • Petals from 34 roses
  • 1 egg white
  • Caster sugar

Instructions

  1. Wash the rose petals and dry gently using kitchen paper.
  2. Paint each petal with egg white and then dip it into the caster sugar.
  3. Place on the cake rack to dry and harden.  This will take about 24 hours.
  4. Use to decorate cakes or puddings.

Notes

Make sure that you use rose petals that have not been treated with any chemicals.  The best place is from your garden as you will know what has been used on the roses.   Don’t use shop-bought roses unless they are specifically designated as being for culinary use.

The flavour will be better if you use strongly scented roses.
