|Mother's Day cake with crystallised flowers|
“Happy Mother’s Day” came the chorus of teens this morning as they arrived bearing this gorgeous looking cake.
It had been baked and decorated last night when we were out and was a real work of art with its crystallised flowers.

So if any of you have forgotten mother’s day, or are looking for inspiration for desert, this delicious carrot cake is very special. As I have already posted the carrot cake recipe in an earlier blog, here is how you make the flowers, according to the teens in the house.
Serves-This can do loads of flowers
Time minutes to make but a few hours to dry
1 egg white
1 tbsp water
3 tbsp of caster sugar
WHAT TO DO:
1. Mix one egg white with a tbsp of water.
2. Then paint the egg mixture gently onto the petals with either your fingers or a paintbrush. Then sprinkle on the sugar all over and gently shake to remove the excess.
3. Leave them to dry for a few hours or overnight.
Then arrange on your cake.
Have fun and Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mother’s out there.
