This technique works with other edible flowers like violets and the yellow primroses on my Lemon and Poppy Seed Syrup Cake. As with using fresh flowers, the important thing to remember is that your rose petals should be pesticide free. I buy my edible flowers from a specialist supplier.

Method

  1. Remove the petals from the flower head, trying to keep them in one piece. Pick out the freshest looking petals.
  2. Working in batches, brush a thin layer of egg white on to both sides of each petal and sprinkle over the sugar to give each petal an even coating.
  3. Set aside on baking parchment or a wire rack to dry with a crisp shell, uncovered, for several hours or overnight. Store at room temperature and use within a day or so of making.
