Candied Flowers

Who knew making Candied Flowers was so simple? For years I've seem them on pastries and cakes in "fancy" shops, but it was only recently that I learned how to make them myself. And, bombshell: it's super-easy. A quick brush of egg white, a dusting of sugar, and you have beautiful sugar-crusted flowers, perfect for putting on top of cakes, cupcakes, or any other special-occasion dessert. *cough Valentine's Day cough*

Just make sure you use flowers that are meant to be edible and aren't doused in pesticides, and you're golden. I usually buy them pre-packaged in the herb section at Whole Foods or similar upscale supermarkets, but I've also seen them at the farmer's market, and if you have a green thumb (which I decidedly do NOT) you could even grow your own edible varieties. Not convinced it's as easy as I'm making it sound? Look, I have a Candied Flower photo tutorial right here. Told ya so.
