Sugar coated flowers. How to make ?
First, you'll want to make sure the flowers you choose to sugar-coat are edible, if you plan to serve them or eat them. You can check the types of flowers that are edible at this Web site:
Here's how to sugar-coat them.
You'll need the following supplies:
1. Unflavored Gelatin (I use Knox, but you can use any brand of unflavored gelatin).
2. Small Paint Brush.
3. Shaker bottles (like salt shakers)
4. Plain or colored sugar (to color sugar, just use food coloring and mix with the sugar to obtain the color you prefer. I use Wilton food coloring, as I get richer hues with it - it takes much less than the watery drops.
6. Small Bowl
7. Wax Paper
Mix 1/4 cup of cold water and a packet of gelatin. Let it sit for about five minutes. Then add 3/4 cup of boiling water and stir until the gelatin dissolves. Put it in the refrigerator. After an hour, remove the gelatin from the refrigerator and stir briskly until it begins to foam. Using a small paintbrush or pastry brush, dip the brush into the gelatin, and paint the leaves and/or petals of the edible flower. Shake the sugar over the freshly gelatin-coated flower.
Carefully place each flower as you complete painting and coating with the sugar onto wax paper. Let them sit until they dry.
