DiY Holiday Centerpiece: Sugared Fruit

Please join me in welcoming our new floral contributor - Kim Foren of Geranium Lake.  You can read all about her stylish floral design on her site or right here.  I'm so excited to have her as part of the CAKE. team... her simple tutorials like the one below are sure to help even black thumbs like me create beautiful arrangements for parties and home decor!

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!
