Hello from Kim of Geranium Lake flowers! This holiday project is one of our favorites for so many reasons… it reminds us of the Sugar Plum Fairies from the Nutcracker ballet, and it is soooo easy.
-Fruit (we used apples, pears, plums, grapes, pomegranates, etc)
-Egg whites (2-3, depending on how much fruit you are sugaring)
Assembly is simple and this could be a fun project with kids too!
Step 1: Paint egg white directly onto the skin of the fruit.
Step 2: Roll in sugar
Step 3: Place on a drying rack until dried.
You can use your “sparkling” fruit in arrangements:
Or, pile them into a large bowl, embellish with a few loose stems (we love roses and gold painted magnolia leaves!) and you’ve got an instant centerpiece!
