Crystallizing &  sugar coating flowers for Cake Decorating

Lightly whisk some egg white and use a small fine brush to completely cover the flower petals and chalice. Sprinkle the flower with superfine granulated sugar.
The sugar can be colored to match the flower by mixing in a little petal dusting powder.

Shake off any excess sugar and dry the flowers completely. Small ones can be left to dry on absorbent paper (i.e. kitchen roll). Larger flowers, such as roses, wrap a piece of wire around the stem, and dry hanging upside down from a glass or other suitable item to avoid squashing the petals.
