Well, the holiday season is truly upon us! We are so excited about this month because we have so many great DIY projects to share with you, a fabulous party and tons of fabulous gift ideas! Today we wanted to share with you a simple DIY that you can make with just fruit and sugar! Sugared fruit looks so gorgeous and festive; it is just perfectly frosted and a really beautiful winter centerpiece. All you need is egg whites, sugar and winter fruit! Great fruits to use include; apples, pears, grapes, plums and oranges. (You can use Wilton's meringue powder and water in place of egg whites if you plan to eat the fruit).
Just take a pastry brush to add the egg whites to the fruit.
When you add the sugar to the fruit be sure to sprinkle it on with a spoon, do not roll it in the sugar or it will get very clumpy.
When you are finished sugaring all of your fruit just lay them on a parchment lined cookie tray to dry for a few hours. When the fruit is dry you can pick it up and gently shake the excess sugar off. Then just arrange it any way you would like, on a pedestal or a bowl to display!
