Many recipes for creating sugared fruit call for egg whites. If you would like to make sure your sugared fruit is safe to eat, I prefer the following recipe.
4 Teaspoons warm water
2 Teaspoons marshmallow cream
1 Cup sugar
Wash and dry all the fruits you plan to use. Spread out sheets of wax or parchment paper for your fruit to dry on.
Mix the water and marshmallow cream throughly in a small bowl. Using a paintbrush, brush a generous amount of the marshmallow cream mixture on a piece of fruit and then holding it over the bowl of sugar, spoon the sugar over the fruit. You can use a wooden skewer to hold the fruits if that makes it easier for you. Place the fruit gently on the paper to dry. Allow your fruit to dry overnight before moving into your centerpiece, or using it to decorate a cake.
