Prepare area for sugaring flowers. Fill bowl with fine sugar. Fine sugar is a finer grain then granulated sugar but more coarse then powdered sugar. Place an empty bowl next to bowl with sugar. Cover tray with grease proof paper to place completed flowers on.
Now gently coat entire flowers with egg mixture. If the entire surface of the flower is not covered you will be unable to use it. The exposed portion of the flower will wilt and discolor. Make sure to turn flower upside down to coat underneath. When you are sure the entire flower is cover move to step 5. Do not start on the next flower until you complete each step per flower.
